how to get mandrake cd's from raw tree?


Mandrake has a new system which only allows the Silver Members to get the ISO's until the retail products are available.

For the time being Mandrake expects use to download the OS from the raw tree.

does anyone know how to get the data from the raw tree onto the 3 CDs required for install?

I'd just download the network.img boot disk image, put it on a floppy, and do a network install. Remember to write down the address of the ftp server, though!

As far as putting the tree on CD, I don't know how to do that.

the network installed didnt work. it had errors installing some packages like ldconfig and glibc

I'm installing Mandrake 9.1 and i'll look into abhay's suggestion for upgrading after i get though the install.
