What is the Mandrake - Mini Install CD?

Does anyone know what's in the Mandrake - Mini Install CD? I installed the first CD of Manrake 10.1 Community version but didn't install the other 2 CD's because I'm just learning the OS and didn't want to load my machine with a lot of software I wouldn't use like OpenOffice and Apache. Found out however that I'm missing some needed programs like kpackage.

Also, does anyone know where I can download this iso using a download manager since I'm on dial-up? Thanks.

I think its for the live install.i.e you first boot using the mini install and then connect your machine to some ftp server or some other source from where it directly downloads and installs the rest of the packages of the linux distro.
I don't think its advisable over a dial up .
You can get the individual rpms at
