source installation cd's

When I installed Slackware, all I downloaded were the first two cd's. I didn't download the 2 source cd's because I thought they just had kernel source stuff.

Am I missing anything by not having those?

Not really. The first 2 are all you need for installing.

Yeah, the extra cds just have the source for all the packages that slackware comes with. If you don't plan to re-compile anything, then you don't need them.
