Fedora Core 2: minimal net install.

Just a quick question.
Can I install Fedora from the 1st iso only?
The web site says only to download 4 disks which does not sound right.
I would like to get minimal and install the rest with apt.

Seems there is no problem using only iso 1. And selecting minimal install. After this you get a command prompt and simply type yum -install "whatever". This worked right off. Hardware detection for fedora was very good with my viewsonic LCD vp171s detected right off. Note SuSE 9.1 did not find my monitor and I had to edit XF86Config later by hand. In fact I Yast or Sax in SuSE would not start due to overfrequency.
