You should have posted earlier.
Read the Mandrake installation manual and create the network boot floppies, then install from the FTP server directly. It usually works well (it does with other distros), especially if you have a high speed connection.

What about 802.11 cards?

My main box is a long way from my router, and DSL line in the house, so I use wi-fi. I have a speedstream pcmcia card along with the PCI adaptor. It is supported under Mandrake 9.0 (what I run now.) is it possible to do a net install this way, or will I have to go get 60 feet of cat5 to connect it to my router the ol' fashioned way?
