    When you enter their FTP , it shows 5 ISOs but I can only get the first 3 to work on all the mirrors I've tried. And in the download section it only mentions 3 disks ... is their FTP messed up showing 2 extra disks that don't exist in the downloadable verion or do I need to find a new mirror ? :confused:

    You only need the first 3 cds to install redhat 8. The other CDs contain (optional) packages and sources. You download them at your own will/speed of your internet and are not required to install and run RH8.

    If you get good speeds to australian sites, checkout this mirror:

    For an average skilled linux user are the extra packages nessisary ? I'm not into programming yet
