You probably realized later that you didn't need all five. Just like
with Solaris, who ever boots off the actual install disc? :) In this
case, you really do boot off what intuitive thinking would lead you to
boot from. But 4 & 5 are just source code.
You didn't really answer the version question. I'll have to ass-ume it
was sometime before 1.0.

Must have been a very early release then. Give 1.0 a try. Or at least
hold off on negative comments about Aurora until you've tried their
first stable release (everything before 1.0 should not be considered
stable and should not be used as a basis for evaluating the distro).
