Question RedHat 8 CD's - How many needed?

Just was wondering how many CD's are required to install RedHat 8. I thought I remember reading that only the first 3 are needed. The last 2 are just source code.
Then talking with from friends, they said all 5 are needed.
What's the correct number?

Thanks!

Now if you were installing FreeBSD you'd only need one disk. Smilie
