	You will need only the 3 i386 disks to install the SRPM's are there for more 
advanced users who want to tailor make their applications.... Probably down 
the road for you, though I suppose you'll at least need to have some 
experience rebuilding packages from srpm for LPI..	
	With the 3 iso's you will be able to install a fully functional server 
system with or without XWindows. With KDE and Gnome, expect that you'll need 
1.8 to 2 Gigs of disk space for the install, probably half of that without X.
	All in all Red Hat is a good distro for you, excellent documentation, easily 
updatable, and a great users base of very active helpful folks.
	Lest I forget, I believe there may be a seperate documentation disk.... Not 
a bad thing to have on hand.
