Unless you choose to install EVERYTHING you won't need to put disk 3 in. Disk 3 has a bunch of extra packages.

also if you choose to include support for other languages (like Chinese or whatever), it'll ask you for disk 3.

I think going foward tho', it will be 3 disks, as the Pheobe beta asks for all 3 binary CDs during a custom install
