Pretty good ones, yourself.

One thing about what itsme86 said - I would not use Partition Magic. I've never used it myself but I hear all kinds of weird problems from people who use it. Mandrake comes with its own NTFS partition resizer and it worked like a charm for me.

I agree. Mandrake's partition manager has all the rave reviews for a good reason. I once wiped a nasty proprietary bootloader out of existence with the help of Diskdrake. Then I was able to get ntloader to fix the mbr for my M$-friendly wifey

Well.. wow. Tons of replies! I didn't expect so much in so little time, this forum is awesome!

I've pretty much had all the basic questions I wanted answered, so now all I have to do is get these CDs made and start messing around in Linux to see what I can get set up and working.

As for the 4 CD thing... the ISO files are called the following..

CD1-inst
CD2-ext
CD3-i18n
MandrakeMove

I dunno what the MandrakeMove thing is.. but I downloaded it anyways, so I dont have to do it later if it comes up that I need it for something. Well, the ISO's are done DLing, just finished, so I'm about to start burning them to CD and get this party started

I really appreciate all the help. I'll definately be hanging around these forums as I learn and use Linux.

I'd never used Mandrake so I didn't know about the partition resizer. Sorry for that bad piece of info there :/

i18n stuff is for international support, so it's probably something you don't need either.

i am sure u know u should do a md5sum before burning them do u? Just a reminder MdkMove is the LiveCD for MDK. Like Knoppix.

I have ATI 9700Pro and have had absolutely NO luck with 3D after quite a bit of tinkering with both the *3.2.8 and *.3.7.0 drivers from ATI
but I read somewhere that some of it may be due to my AthlonXP or AMD in general.
(I dunno thats what I've heard.. Go Figure)
In any case, from the posts I've read it at least seems that the Intel guys are having better luck with it.
If I had the nForce like you. I'd probably just go with that for Linux since
it seems that it's getting better results.
Assuming of course that you can switch between the two relatively easily.
