I installed Mandrake8 on a spare computer (PI 166mhz) with out any problems. Once installation was complete, I found out how stuck I am in the Windows environment. Installing programs and system administration has been a little difficult. Getting Linux to network with my other Windows systems has yet to happen. The system itself seems to be very stable.

I too have heard that Mandrake is easy. So my issues are probably operator error.

for linux for me it breaks down like this

red hat and mandrake--- really easly to lean and use they look sleek and can do what any other distor can do but are hard to rip apart when somthing gose haywire.

Slack and debian- if you know your stuff execpt no substitutes slack or debian are highly customisable and make any machine run really good or even better.

as for other distors I couldent tell you beacue these are the only distos that I have used in the past....I got most to work but with lots of help.

I just installed Mandrake Linux V 9.0 and it's excellent. You can even dual install it with Windows2000 with no hassles, it seems to sort out the bootloader issue automatically.

mandrakesoft file for protection from creditors (something like that)in france, which is similar to chapter 11 in this country. looks like the penguin went belly up :cry: (next it'll be like an enron scenario, with the main corporate people guilty of ripping the co off, and driving it under to be protected from creditors- who the f knows? the penguin was guilty of shredding the documents!)

if you're new to linux, you might want to try knoppix, which actually boots off of a cd, decompresses to around 1700mb, preconfigured, and works quite well w/o ever installing to hard drive. i'm actually writing this post from w/in knoppix kde desk top- i'm impressed!
