Depends on just how you plan to do your installation.
If you plan to install just from CD and not over the internet, then
you need disc1-3 (maybe)  The basic install is just disc1, but the 
other two have the rest of the ports you may wany.  If you don't need
the ports you don't need disc2 and 3.

But, I normally install over the net.  For that you can get by with
either bootonly or disc1 and you don't need the others.  They have
just revised the cd content for FreeBSD 7.x so there are some
differences, but the pattern is the same.
