INSTALL Fedora Core 5 - Disk 3 and beyond..

I have installed Linux FC5 and it only required 2 of the 5 disks. System won't boot from Disk 3 so what do I need to do to install the stuff (?) on the remaining 3 disks?

Nevermind, I see now that it's just libraries, software extras and developer tools.

For the Linux newbie, what's usefull or what do I need from these 3 remaining disks?

I was trying to install Fedora Core 3. Multiple times it said no CD found, please insert the CD, though CD was there in the drive. Just kept on saying ok and disk inserted .. couple of tries and it started reading not sure what is the issue may be because I have 1 CD-Rom and 1 CD-RW
