Mandrake91-i18n.i586.iso
Mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586.iso
Mandrake91-cd2-ext.i586.iso
Mandrake91-cd3-i18n.i586.iso

Mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586.iso <--- required

Mandrake91-cd2-ext.i586.iso <--- not required, but you'll mostly likely want it

Mandrake91-cd3-i18n.i586.iso <--- internationalization cd... if you need extra languages and stuff get this too

md5sums.91.asc <--- md5sums for the downloads (checks to make sure the transfers succeeded and none of the .isos are corrupted

readme <--- you'll probably want this too as it will answer all the questions you're about to post in this thread :)

All of them together make the "full version".

The first one contains the OS + some programs, the second one contains many more programs, the third one is internationalization + a few programs I think...

If you want a full OS, then just the first will do, but if you want all the cool programs to be called "full" then you need all the cds.
