Supported?
 
I was thinking of switching from windows XP pro to this new mandrake linux version (10.0), but I wanna make sure that my hardware is compatable first, and there is a couple things I coulden't find on their supported hardware page.

gfx card - NVIDIA e-GeFORCE FX 5200
mobo - ASRock K7S8XE+

If someone could tell me if these are supported or not, thatw ould be great :D.


And is the CD-ROM the only hasrdware that Mandrake Linux can mess up? everything else will just.. not work right while on Mandrake Linux, but will work just fine on Windows?

Thanks :)

The CD-ROM problem was associated with LG's branded CD-ROMS (and some others, can't remember right now) and 9.2. It shouldn't apply to you, even if you have a LG, since you are installing 10.0.

As with the everything working right, can't say until you give it a go and install it. If you do run into any problems, you already know where to go and get help;) .
