    How many CD's?????


    I have never tried Slackware, but I hear it's pretty good, so I decide to try it. The problem is, I don't want to download/burn 4 CD's, how much do I need to have the basic install plus some major applications (e.g OpenOffice, Gaim, Gimp, ect)?
    Same question to Gentoo.
