Yes, the ring gasket first, then the flat gasket.  You have to install the ring gasket, then lay the flat gasket over it, then install your float & needle.  Center the flat gasket, then install & tighten the bowl.  I believe the flat gasket serves to prevent gasoline from bouncing up into the vent in rough conditions.

I set the float before I install the gaskets.  I is easier for me, not having the gaskets in the way with the 11/64" drill bit
