Red Hat 9 Distro Question

I recently purchased the book "Beginning Red Hat 9" that comes with a 2 cd RH9 distro. I looked through other RH9 books and they also included a 2 cd version. However, if you were to dl the isos, there are 3 total. And if you purchase a basic version there are also 3 cds. So what is the difference? What am I missing with my 2 cd version? Thanks.

I think they just removed some packages that were not for beginners like the ones the recompile your kernel for exemple

Don't worry.
You can always download the RPMs from the RedHat web site or any other FTP server which has the RedHat distribution.
