boy, have i got issues! I install mandrake linux 9.0 mabe 7 times. the thing is, at times it freez up the screen just before it restarts. for no reason! and at times it does the same when i try to login. I had to hit the restart button and since i did. it mess up lilo! i try to reinstall it by running a upgrade and choosing nothing. so it can reinstall lilo. it did. i try to boot into windows after it booted into linux find. but i couldn't boot into windows! after window's logo it show some text on top saying it can't find something. so i needed to reinstall everything! crap. i had to keep lilo. i got windows xp recovery cd and it doesn't write a new MBR, so i install linux first and do the partitions. now i install BootMagic as my MBR, and no thinking about using redhat. Mandrake is nothing but problems!!! im going offline in a week. no more internet an di want a linux disturb that will work! http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/future.php3

mandrake's ftp servers are crap also. theres not one that has a full working downloadable updates. always have to switch ftps.
