Installing CentOS

I want to burn disk images for a clean install of CentOS. The following files are available:

CentOS-4.1-i386-bin1of4.iso 11-Jun-2005 19:23 617M
CentOS-4.1-i386-bin1to4.torrent 12-Jun-2005 07:19 166K
CentOS-4.1-i386-bin2of4.iso 11-Jun-2005 19:25 635M
CentOS-4.1-i386-bin3of4.iso 11-Jun-2005 19:26 638M
CentOS-4.1-i386-bin4of4.iso 11-Jun-2005 19:27 225M

I have no idea what a .torrent file is. Any help would be appreciated.

You can download the iso files and burn those. The torrent file is a bittorent type file, which basically downloads the iso files from many different sources at the same time instead of putting all the stress on the download servers. Go to the bittorrent website to find out more about it. For a good bittorrent client, download azureus.
