Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Why do you care about the minimum memory supported? Do you have a low end machine with low memory? If so, why do you ask about the maximum number of CPU/numberof NIC/storage? Do you have a machine with 100k CPUs, 1000 NICs, 1000Tb with 2Mb of RAM?
Anyway the answers depends on the context. It all depend on the task you are intending to do. Some tasks require more memory than others, some filesystems support more storage than others and some kernel settings support more CPU than others.
I need to simply prepare an excel sheet with these data. I explored Mandriva Site but no help. I will be posting it on their forum too. But Just for information as my intention is not to deploy but submit the answers to my client. thats it.
What are your clients going to do with that sheet? Web servers? Desktops? Embedded software? HPC supercomputing? Netbooks? File server? What is the hardware? x86? ARM? MIPS? Are your client going to compile their kernel or customize the distro? Which filesystem are they going to use?
1. What is the maximum number of CPUs supported by Mandriva 2010.1 RC1/2?
-> More than you have. The most powerful computer in the world runs linux.
2.Minimum memory supported ?
-> 400 000 000 TB
4.Maximum no. of NICs supported?
-> More they there are in the whole world.
-> 100^100 TB
-> 800 000 000 TB
In other words, there are no limits. The system is just not able to do some tasks when the requirements are not met for the task.
