as you can see im planning to install MDK 9.2. ive been reading all kinds of linux docs and im planning on printing out the mandrake documentation to keep in a binder just in case. i wanna explore linux (i used red hat a loooooooong time ago) so im gonna install it in a separate HD on my pc. i just read that the kernel that comes with MDK 9.2 cant read NTFS partitions properly and can screw them up in the process....is this true or will i be able to read my mp3's right after installing?
as u can see from my sig im running a Dell Dimension 8250 (i know, i know
) which has had everything Dell related wiped out (except for the crappy BIOS). i read in another forum that the Mandrake installation freezes at the hardware detection stage, and that i should disable usb before going along with it. is this actually necessary? it'd be nice to be able to configure my webcam, scanner and wireless adapter right away instead of doin it separately afterwards.
thanks in advance!
