Mandrake 10... how many ISO's are there?


In checking out the Mandrake 10 mirrors every day, I see 3 iso images available for download. But in another post I could swear I read someone mentioned 4 iso images? And when I ran through the installation today, it prompted me for disc 4 but I had to click cancel and my install finished just fine. So my question really is, how many iso's are there for the community version and if they're are more than 3, where do I get the rest?

The 4th and 5th disc were released only to club members. They contain commercial stuff so they can't give them for free. You should be fine with the first 3 cd's.

Thanks for the info.

What kind of commercial apps? I'm wondering, is it worth the $120 / year? ....not that I really expect an answer, just that I've poked around on many of Mandrakes web links and have never been able to find a definitive listing of what you get on those extra CD's.... always just a broad overview of the distro as a whole.



p.s.
Mandrake marketers, if you happen to read this... take note!

I've seen some posts that contain a link to the whole package listing... but since it's so big, I haven't read it all.
120$ a year? Not for me... I'll just buy the powerpack dvd that comes out in may

I think they include some non GPL stuff on the fourth CD like nVidia drivers and java rpm, stuff they can not just distrubute for free because of licensing.

There is also the MandrakeMove iso which I got because I heard there were 4 iso also and I figured it was the 4th...turns out it is just their version of Knoppix.
