Toshiba Satellite 4100XDVD & Mandrake 10.1

Has anyone successfully installed Mandrake 10.1 on Toshiba Satellite 4100XDVD? Is there anything I should know or prepare in advance such as drivers, etc?

I just installed that today actually. I dual booted it with Win98 and had some problems with the partition manager in the install, it just froze. but when I went into Windoze it had change the partition size properly, went back to the install and it did the same thing. So I booted up Knoppix and used QTParted to set up hda1 the way I wanted then tryied the install again and was able to finnish it in about 45min. everything works perfect, all usb and sound drivers and even my pcmcia card for ethernet works without configuration.
The only problem I'm having is with the bios on the laptop itself. The laptop was sitting without being touched for at least 6 months. My g/f's dad had it there in the closet and the battery had died completely and I said I'd take it and but it to use for something so I charged it. but the stretch screen won't stay on and I can't figure out how to set the system clock, it keeps setting back to July 22, 2005(the last time he used it before the battery died).

I do realise that you've prolly allready instaled it by now and figured it out. just thought I'd let you know you might have to use a live CD to get the partitions set up for dual boot.
