I installed Mandrake 10.1 on a HP ZD7260, also with a Geforce, 80 MB HD, 512 RAM. It works very well. Actually, I like much better than Suse 9.1, Mandrake is more stable, more robust. Suse was kind of weak with the video driver. I lost my widescreen resolution more than once, I did not like that. With Mandrake, as ually, the wireless is not working, neither the multimedia reader, do not care too much about the last one, but I would like to findout how to make the wireless work.
