These are updated distributions.  Latest one is update 4 I belive.  You
want to use the latest updated distribution--forget the rest.  Don't try
to burn these either.  Many of the ISO's are too large for a single
CD--grrr.  It's better just to mount them as a filesystem anyway and use
what you need from there.

Have a look at the README or COPYING files on the first CD.  It maps out
how the software is laid out on all of the 4 CD's.  You will likely not
need all of them to install RedHat.

Just realized you are referring to RHEL 3.  I am using 2.1 (vendor demands
it for support) so YMMV.
