Yep. Indeed they do, _but_ the second CD isn't Install CD2 which you only
get with the commercial version, it's an extras CD, the RPMs on which you
need to install seperately to the main installation.
It could be just me, but I find this a pain in the ass. When I get a new
distro I like to do a "complete" install, have a look around, and then
afterwards nuke it and install just what I need. Which is a problem when
utils like telnet and libraries like libpcap (for tcpdump, ntop et al)
aren't on the install CD, and I only find out when I'm at work in dire need
of telnet, tcpdump or whatever and don't have the CDs with me.
Also, there's no bloody option for complete install on Mandrake 8, IIRC,
just package categories.
