there are people that have said that have already done the official download for 10.1 via ftp already, I realize that it hasn't been put up on the Mandrake site in ISO form, I was just wondering if there was an ftp install site available already. If not I guess I will have to wait. Calm down buddy.

Guys, it's fully legal to do an ftp installation.

Any ftp mirror should do, you can find out which ones exist by going to easyurpmi.zarb.org - just make sure you get the right address for the main branch, get the boot.iso cd image and burn it.
Then do the ftp installation.

Yup, don't know where equinox got this.

FTP installs are indeed directly supported, which is why the distro DVD's are posted in full (non-iso) form on these sites, specifically so you CAN perform an FTP install.

Usually these are made available the same day as the official releases.

It is a bit cumbersome to get the system up this way from bare metal, however once the machine is running at a GUI level, usually you can use these sources to install further applications.

It's quite handy actually if you are without your install disks and need to add a package.

For those people looking to try an FTP install, there is a directory called Install/Images that contains floppy "network" disks that can be used as well as a boot.iso file that can be burned to CD (for you diskless types like me... heh...) that also permits FTP installs.

You may need to configure the network interface manually if you do not have local DHCP services running on some other machine or router, and you also will have to manually specify the top level location of the remote repository... meaning the directory on the FTP site that contains the media subdirectory for 10.1.

You can also use this technique locally to install Linux onto a machine that may prove problematic to set up via local CD's.

You can use the ftp mirrors that Mandrakesoft provides. Just burn the boot.iso to a cd, boot from it and supply the ftp server you want to use and the directory to the mdk 10.1 installation and you're good to go.
