[rescue] SGI IRIX question

So would the following CD list make a full 6.5.3 CD set:

IRIX 6.5.3 Installation Tools and Overlays (1 of 2) February 1999
IRIX 6.5.3 Overlays (2 of 2) February 1999
IRIX 6.5 Applications February 1999
IRIX 6.5 Foundation 1
IRIX 6.5 Foundation 2
IRIX 6.5 Development Foundation
IRIX 6.5 Development Libraries
IRIX 6.5 Base Documentation June 1998
ONC3/NFS Version 3 for IRIX 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5
SNMP Access to HP-UX MIB 1.1.2 for IRIX 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5

And I assume the IRIX 6.5 Applications June 1998 CD would no longer
be required (from the base 6.5 set) as it would be replaced with the
February 1999 CD from the 6.5.3 update.

So, does this look correct, beyond correct, missing something, or
"just right" ?
