Hi, I'm sure you can. It's is a linux distro, and I can't see why it would not work with Mandriva.

But I personally dual bot with winXp

Cheers, Glenn

If suse and fedora work It should work.

Welcome aboard!

Glenn

ps, what I have seen here is that as long as win is on the first partition

You should not have any worries, but!

I have winXp on my second harddrive, and had no problems.

I arrived at this by "when installing a new harddrive I swithced the cables to make the old hd to sdb and the new one became sda. I haven't had any probs.

As Ernie says, "HTH"

Not as default.

But I've found amarok to be an exceptionally good mp3 manager/player.

Sorry to interrupt but at this computer I am for some reason unable to open a new thread.

I have just got my hands on Mandriva free 2007. Does anyone know if this can be installed on a PS3? For now I have Fedora Core 5 but I cannot make the internet connection to function and the same goes for the media features (music and video).
Once again, sorry for the interruption.
