Fedora Core 4 ISO images - do I need them all?

Hey all, I am redoing my computer so to speak, and I killed my god-forsaken Windows ME (god I hate ME) and was attempting to put XP on, but my computer didn't like that idea (my machine is more than capable of running it though) and instead I have decided to go to Fedora Core. I have Fedora Core 1 on it right now (thanks to cd's I had of it) and was going to put Fedora Core 4 on (ya know upgrade big time) and was just wondering whether or not I actually needed all of the ISO images from I went under the 4/i386 category (I am using a PIII 667 machine) and there's 9 ISO's there. Do I need all of them? Or do I just need either the SRPMS or the regular disc ISO's? Just wondering, I have finished the disc1.iso, and am about halfway through 2 and 3, I just wanted to know if I needed the SRPMS ones as well? I understand the recoverycd ISO, but I just thought I'd ask if anyone knew the answer to this? Thanks.

It is fortunate for those in power that people do not think.

You'll only need the 'standard' discs. In fact, if you only do a Personal Desktop install and not modify any settings, I believe it only uses disc 1 and 2.
