Why does it take over 4 hours to install Mandrake 10.1?
It shouldn't be this way! I am trying to upgrade my Mandrake 9.2 install to 10.1 and its taking over 4 hours. And as I recall when I initially installed Mandrake 9.2 on this machine last year it also took an inordinate amount of time for it to install off the CD.
About my setup: AMD K6-2 400Mhz processor, 128MB SDRAM, 40GB Maxtor HD, installing Mandrake off of a CD-RW\DVD combo drive (sorry I don't know what brand it is right now, and I can't really check since it is in the middle of the install right now...but it is about 4 years old).
I am tempted to think that the CD-ROM drive is at fault. Are certain makes and models known to have difficulty running the install process?
