Mandrake 8.2 Graphical Startup as in 8.1


Hey all! I recently downloaded Madnrake 8.2 and put them on my CD-RWs where I had 8.1 before. However, I really liked the Mandrake 8.1 graphical startup. It was really cool, beautiful and blue. That's partially the reason I switched from RedHat to Mandrake because I liked the Mandrake startup. However the default 8.2 startup kinda sucks, is ugly and different. May you please tell me how to make it the way it is 8.1 by default. Thanks.

you can't. at least not without an awful lot of messing around. 8.1 used a program called aurora to do all that annoying rubbish, but 8.2 has dropped that and instead does everything using a specially compiled kernel. you could probably go and compile new kernel similar to the older one, and re install the oolder version of lilo.. but it's not a nice thing to do really.
