Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have an i386-linux-thread-multi directory... i think thats where the file was to begin with
when i type urpmi, this is what it outputs:
Can't locate urpm.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at /usr/sbin/urpmi line 20.

your perl does not have i386-thread-multi directory
located at your perl directory
upgrade your perl installation again
and if it still does not work
give the content of the pm file
actually, just a bit of html work i was doing for ppl, i usually keep most of my stuff on my server anyways... and all i need to do is burn the mdk 9.1 iso's (already dl's yesterday, finally got into a ftp that wasnt overloaded )
im sorta leanin that way... just need to log into root to give me write access to my server again :S
ok now which server is not overloaded
on the "official" download page almost all the mirrors were overloaded
i tried to download that day before yesterday but have now given up hoping to try again soon
or do you know any other mirror?
as for your problem
as said you can install the rpms from your cd
i think there is a nice program(package) called package manager or so in mandrake
you can use that to install the perl rpms
i got into a server by chance, it was the second us one, i think... and package manager is in mdk, but it also doesnt work, which is why im just gonna reformat, and ill prob run a dual boot win xp in there, just for kicks, and to see what happens (never done a dual boot before)
one last question: which is better, sticking windoze in its own little 4 or 5 gig partition, and the installing mdk9.1 on the rest, or putting a full partition for winxp, and then installing mdk 9.1 on the rest?
windows applications take a lot of space and would thus require a bit of space
if you have a 40 gb harddisk i think you can give 10-15 gb to xp and the rest to mandrake
Otherwise you can install xp on a fat32 partition giving it as much space as you would like
Fat32 can be mounted rw in linux and thus you could use this space in linux
