I think Sorento is trying to say:
When setting up a Service Desk can you just apply a subset of Book 1 (Service Support) or do you need to apply all of ITIL?
It would take too long to successfully apply all of ITIL when trying to set up a Service Desk so my advice would be to apply Incident Management first, then look at adding Problem, Change & Config a little later.
Hope that helps

You do not need to apply any of ITIL. What would be good would be to understand IT service management (and here ITIL can help rather a lot) and then apply that understanding to the design of a service desk to meet your requirements.
The reason for this being the answer, despite the fact it may seem vague and theoretical, is that what you can achieve largely depends on the maturity of your overall service management environment, not just the service desk function.
If you take models and structures from the book and plant them in an organization that does not understand them, however well meaning, you will come to grief. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."
