XFCE and Mandrake


I plan to install Mandrake Linux 9.1 on my laptop, and was wondering what distro of XFCE comes with Mandrake? I assume it's Version 3 correct?
Of all the windows managers, which one is the fasted? Well, at least relatively, which one acording to your opinion uses the least system resources?
I heard good things about XFCE so I thought I'd give it a try.

For lightweight window managers, I like Blackbox.

Aeon,

I feel XFce is about the best thing out there. I am sure version 3 is still in Mandrake 9.1. XFce4.0 was just released yesterday. I am running it on Mandy9.1 and it runs very nice.

Probably too late to help you, but I've got the same model
so I can tell you what I've got in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with Slack-10.0
Code:
HorizSync  -  31.5 - 50.0
VertRefresh  -  40-90

$ xrandr
Pixels  800 x 600   Refresh  *73

Option  "Protocol"  "PS/2"
Option  "Device"  "/dev/mouse"
I'm trying to get the winmodem and sound working. If you
have any ideas, I would appreciate the help.
