Question Mandrake Disks

Ok im currently downloading Mandrake 9.1 on a 56k modem..yeah its a pain but i have done it before so don't tell me its not possiable.... Anyways i heard that you only need 1 disk and thats the first disk to install the whole version of mandrake. Then what are the other 2 for? Do i really need them? If i dont get them will it have major effects on my mandrake? please help i will probabbly end up downloading the other 2 but i just want to make sure i can get mandrake working before i do that. Thank you

P.S if anyone knows a site that names all the things on each disk it would help me a lot thanks

You dont really need 2nd and 3rd cd. Everything u need for basic installation (including KDE) is on the first cd. Second cd has some additional software which you can always install off the web..and third one has documentation and other languages support.
