I have installed and used Ubuntu Linux using the Gnome desktop and have extensive experience with all of the Windows OS's. The problem I am having is trying to determine without too much trial and error which ISO(s) to download. I have downloaded both ISO disks (1 & 2) for an i386 platform. Are both disks necessary for installation (the 505mb and 574mb) ? Or are each disk the same version using a different desktop? Basically, what ISO(s) do I need to burn to disk for the initial installation?

If you have a good internet connection, you can use the boot only ISO 
and then do FTP install.
