It's more apps, if you wanna install something, you are usually better off looking on one of those discs before heading out to find it on the net somewhere...

Like GKrellm, it's probably on your disc(s) somewhere, you can install it from there rather than having to d/l it from

The 3rd cd is more applications like MasterC stated, the last 2 cd's are source cd's, probably going to do you no good if you don't understand what source means.. But the 4th and 5th one are truly not needed to install Redhat.
