Want to know contents of 2 Source cds

hello all,
last week i installed Slack 10.1(though slack10.2 is out i haven`t got cds yet ).I installed it thru 2 installation cds.which installed with kernel
Ok i want know whenever i see to buy slackware distro cds on net

Pretty much the 2.6.x kernel and source code for every thing on the two install cd's. Very much useful for developers or those who wish to scratch build their distro.
