Slackware 9.0 iso size

I have been checking various FTP sites for Slackware 9.0 and have noticed that the iso's vary in size. In fact one site has two diffferent sized iso's. I am on an out of town assignment on a 56K connection and have meet someone with broadband who will download and burn a CD for me. (We have 700mB disks) I would like to do it right the first time. I don't mind filling out kernel sources or internationalization later.

Do the different sizes mean that the iso's are not the "official iso's"?
Does any one have the size of the official iso?
Anyone have problems with a particular size of iso?
