RH8 CD1,2,3,4,5 Burn All?


Hi,
I've downloaded the ISOs for RedHat8, there were 5 ISOs, Disc1-5, so i downladed all of them. But I suspect that I won't be needing all the 5 discs for installation, do I?
I am running XP now and have left 5G+ at the end of my HD unformatted, ready for RH8.
I've just burnt the images of Disc1 and Disc2, do I need Disc 3,4,5 for installation of RH8? why are there so many Disc anyway?
thanx.

you need 1, and 2 contains lots of useful things that you will possible want. The others are not required, they are source code, documentation or additional packages.

For some reason i needed disk 3 as well. I installed most of the packages, including the kernel source and all that development stuff. This was the latest RH tho, maybe 8.1 is different.
