Best place to buy Mandrake 9.1 CD's?

Hi, I'm installing Mandrake Linux for the first time and I started downloading it yesterday but I can already see its going to take forever(dialup), plus my Nero demo has run out, so I'm looking for a place that sells the CD's cheaply and reliably. Any ideas?

You might as well add the Knoppix live CD to the order. You won't regret it.

# Cheap CDs
Discount Linux CDs
Linux Central
Os Heaven

# Mandrake links
Mandrake home page
Mandrake Users website
Easy urpmi config for Mandrake
urpmi mini-HOWTO
Easy software management: Red Carpet
Maximum RPM
You didn't install the developmental packages? As root, command:
urpmi gcc
An Introduction to the Midnight Commander. You can install it by commanding:
urpmi mc
Midnight Commander home page
