I noticed that mandrake is setting sound to 0 yes, and I changed that.. I also attempted to go through the troubleshooting steps and couldn't get some of them to work.....
Thanks for the help about the second cd being the real bootable one
Oh, also I noticed this mandrake version doesn't come with xmms and I've tried to install it but heh.. package dependencies are a pain as usual... I've went through several things on that and there seems to be always more.. is there anyway to just fetch everything one needs in one location where there isn't a bunch of extra crap that makes it extremely confusing?
Another addition: Anyone know how to effectively use dual monitors.. how to stretch the desktop to encompass them both that is?
