Tips Mandrake 9.2 install ( The simple way ): 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 important for everybody ! 1). Go for all the defaults the installer presents you. ( do check if the partitioner leaves enough space for your Windows ) 2). Choosing packages: all on the left side the defaults + Gonme and KDE on the right ( If you do not run a server ( you absolutely need the development packages ) 3). Overview configuration: . . check if there are no items left un-configured ( if so config them ) 4). Install Lilo in MBR 5). Make a boot floppy too ( Problems ? Look here: Formatting floppy 1722kB and Making boot floppy ) 6). Update after install . . . 100 - 200 MB ( already ! B) Drakx, Harddrale, KDEbase, Gnomelibs Mplayer and many more) Don´t do all the updates at once, take groups of 4 - 6 at a time and give the process time to finish before closing the MCC ! ( Most US and French mirrors are useless, so pick a update mirror from the Netherlands or Germany) 7). After the Install, get more programs in the MCC, the default install, even with all the packages is pretty minimal, there is plenty more on the CD´s you can install with the normal "add software" in the MCC ! ( Don´t forget to run the updates again after installing the new programmes ) 8). Install anacron !!!! ( See Cron and Anacron ) WARNING: After updating/adding software: do not open the menu for 60 seconds . . it has to be written to cache ( Related to menu problem mentioned above ) Have FUN !! ;) Bruno

Thanks for the link! I just had a comcast technician come to my house today. He claims it's a problem with the node and not any of my stuff (yay), and that they had 5 guys working on it today. They claim it should be fully fixed by monday, and that within the next month, they will be doubling their speeds!Just to check, what speeds are you all getting from this server. I'm at 50-60Kb/sThanks again!! I can't wait ;)

Yes, thanks for the link, Bruno. YOU THE MAN!!!!I am getting wildly ranging speeds. From 11k to 30k. Constantly going up and down between the two. I have a 2mb cable connection.

Stryder,It´s only a little server . . . we will have to do with it . . it´s available nowhere else . . . ;) Bruno
Oh no, don't get me wrong, I have no complaints what so ever. I was just answering the mans question regarding what kinds of speeds we were getting. I am more than happy with the link you so graciously supplied to us Mandrake addicts.Hail Bruno!! For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow....everybody now, for he's a jolly.........

So, now there is a dilema. Is the the final of 9.2? I just downloaded and burned 9.1 for my first time use of Linux...should I stick with 9.1(which I have yet to installed), or nix that idea and download and install this version?Since 9.1 has been around longer is it better for me a first time user to get aquainted using that?

I would recommend you go with the latest version. It will save you a LOT of upgrades to other components.There should also be a lot of 9.2 users here in the next few days. B)

Brian,Isn´t it great fun, pure bliss ??I will be online a few hours later for my morning session, so if you have problems I will handle them then . . ( that is 04:00 New York time ) But I think you will be alright and will not have any problems . . . Just print out my instructions in the beginning of this thread and go for it.B) Bruno

Thanks Bruno!I am FINALLY getting DSL. It just became available where I live last week. The account will be activated on the 27th. And my first download will be MD 9.2 :( Now I will have to sit here all weekend looking at my new DSL modem and D-Link router not being able to play with any of my new toys. B) Thanks again. :(
