Depends on just what you need to do.
But, in general, burn disc-1.    You can install from that including some
of the more common ports or use that CD to install over the net.  DIsc-1 also
has the fixit shell.

You need disc-2 only if you want to install ports that are not on disc-1.  
The boot-only disc will allow you to install only over the net.
