Mandrake I'm sure will announce this so no one knows til they announce it. I bet Mandrake doesn't even know specifically yet.

If you're feeling a bit adventurous then maybe you can try the community edition. Tell us your hardware or check on the Mandrake website for any known bugs related to your hardware.

Your Asus mobo might give mouse trouble with the 2.6 kernel. But n worrys, I also have an Asus mobo(Asus Cusi-m) and the mouse works fine with the 2.4 kernel.
In order to get it to install the 2.4 kernel, push escape at the start screen of the installation and enter alt1.
Maybe you should check the Mandrake website for a list of knwon probs that might pop up.
