If you go ahead in this link and click the second "now", you will be taken to the mirrors page. Choose the closest mirror to you and start the download.

Don't forget, if you are doing this through win:

- ftp transfers have to be done in binary form

- Mdk10 are three iso files. Yes, you have to donwload all three.

- Besides the iso files, there is a md5sum file. You have to check if the donwload went ok, using this file. If you can't do it, post here and we explain.

- When the downloads are finished you can burn the cd's using your win burning application. You have to choose "burn image", be it Nero or Easy CD creator.

- You don't need to purchase. If you install Mdk, if you like it and if you decide to keep using, its a good idea to purchase. This way, you support your distro. But its not mandatory.

installed and all is looking sweet:)

Hello guys, Thanks for the help so far.

I installed the mandrake 10 and all is looking sweet so far.

next step now is trying to get the network to receive internet on another pc.

I want to leave the winxp on that one for now till I get completely comfortable with the linux I have on this system.

could anyone guide me on how to set mandrake 10 and winxp to work on the network.

I tried the usual options of internet connection sharing, but thats as far as I went

You mean, mdk is routing net for winxp? If it is so, you have to search for "NAT", or network address translation. Or also, ip forward, can be called. Not sure what's mdk program to set things, but you have to enable ip traffic to pass through your eth cards, one to another. This is how you do internet sharing.
I managed to do this, sometime ago, running mdk 8.2, but I don't remember the exact path to these settings.

Hmmmm 199 dollars for a Windows XP Home UPGRADE ONLY CD....

98 dollars for SuSE 9.1 Pro... not scary at all....

SuSE 9.1 Pro for free off of FTP... HMMMMMMM (FTP = file transfer protocol)

I didn't like mandrake I found it almost as painfull as windows to customize.... but... mandrake does seem to coexist pretty well with a duel boot of windows =)

Just to check it out... check out knoppix =)
