what kind of mouse do you have? maybe it's unsupported in the setup but after the install the mandrake system should support it. the minimal partition setup is 1 swap en 1 native, correct

Hi, I'm sure that you can choose to install your Mandrake box in text mode and not in graphical mode.
This means that you don't need mouse to install you box, but you'll see if your mouse works after the first OS boot.
Try this, hope this helps...
