Thanks in advance.
You might keep Mandrake and
install another distro....just do what you need to make about a 3G partition, and load another distro.
If you haven't already this would be a good time to partition your drive with different partitions for
...and a partition to load another distro on to.
I have been thinking about the same thing; but, I already have the partitions.
I have already tried Lindows, Red Hat, Debian & Knoppix (HD install)...but:
I've been reading the docs for Gentoo and for Slackware....and Gentoo wins hands down.
I'll be installing it first...then some time later, probably Slackware.
Check out these awesome install docs:
