Thumbs up Downloading Sarge ISO images with Jigdo.....

I've just downloaded Sarge ISO sarge-i386-1.jigdo, and there are a total of twelve other images varying in size ( ), do I need to download all of these too? or is just the one enough?

I also have the problem of not knowing what to burn to CD, using winblows2k and clonecd
anyway the files I have to choose from are...
sarge-i386-1.iso - 533Mb
sarge-i386-1.jigdo - 20.5Kb
sarge-i386-1.template - 21.1Mb
I know this is probably a REALLY dumb question, but hey I can get away with it...
so what do I do burn them all? or just the ISO.... in which case whats the other lot for?....

Any help is much appreciated,

Hi I don't quite understand : (
You say your using debian witch is fine and burning cd under what name is ...?
Either you've got debian running you want jigdo thant apt-get install jigdo (under root). For burning cd/dvd: apt-get install k3b cdrecoord cdrdao and burn what you want with k3b (gui or not).
Or you want to install debian (sarge). Jigdo is only a programm to download files over internet and re-composing iso after download.
As the sarge installer and iso are not released yet. My choice to install debian is knoppix. Normally 3.4 (kernel 2.6) version is on the launch. They say on site that it'll be released for the exibition this week.

Hope this helps. Marc A

You only need the first disk to install. The other disks contain more software, don't get them if you don't want the software on them.
