Smile Mandrake 9.1 on Presario 1800 XL2

Hi everybody,

has anybody tried to install Mandrake 9.1 on a Presario 1800 XL2 successfully? My presario is currently running W2K on a 2Gig Partition and there is an extra 9gig partition empty. I bought this laptop second hand recently. Because I don't have the w2k installation cds and don't have a ghost utility program I would like to get some feedback before I risk it.

Thanks for any comments.


These are some specs:
Processor Architecture: Intel
Processor Type: x586 - Pentium with MMX Support
Operating System: WINDOWS NT 5.0 Service Pack: 2195
Memory: 191 MB
video card: Rage P/M Mobility AGP 2X
Sound: ESS Solo 1 PCI AudioDrive
