Mdk 8.1 help with download and arrangement

When you get transfered to the Mdk ftp site to download the new version of Linux it's huge!!

I have a fast connection to the internet but have no idea on how to arrange the folders so that I can create a (or more) cd so that I can reinstall Mdk on my machine......

How do I arrange the folders because to try to copy all of it to one cd would not be possible...

Do I just put the root files on one cd
then the Mandrake directory on another, etc?

Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks.

The first list of ftp sites on the download page are all sites which have the packages seperately. After that is a list of ftp sites which have the iso files. Those are the ones you want to get. There should be three iso files which you can use to create 3 cd's.
