I am yet to get anything to work on this distro im sorry for my low score and I do appreseate the work mandrake do but there distros are so newbie windows like, Im a slackware user now and I lOVE it the best thing ive eva done is changed to slack.
Install is great nice look and feel for the newbie like me, It did take a long time to install but you just dont look at it for a while and it all good.
It booted o.k. speed the first time but my modem in a winmodem which was a bit gay, but was still a lot nicer to me then mandrake 10 CE was, I cotomized it abit and got rid of that MS xp look and feel and i was sweet, got my modem going the secound distro or thrid i think i used slack but that was abit over hard for the newbie like me but from what ive read ill be usin it in a couplr of mouths lol.
They should have waited abit longer after there version 8 release so they would have more up2date stuff but its fine for me and what im using it for the main proplem was some of the network bugs etc, i hate them rh9 is alot better the mandrake 10 CE the offical release is surpost to have fixed them.
