Where to download Mandrake 9.2? (YES I'M AN IDIOT!)

Okay, I know this is probably a very silly question asked by a very silly user, but where can I download Mandrake 9.2 from? I checked their FTP sites but didn't know which file(s) to download. Can anyone help me out?

It says on their website that 9.2 is available for download by non-MandrakeClub members. But I can't find it!

Thanks a lot. So this "RC2" isn't the final download version, is it?

Update Nov 3rd, 2003: due to the LG issue the public release of Mandrake 9.2 ISOs has been delayed for a few days.
Having just had a look at the mandrake download page here I picked up the quote above.

When they've updated the notes, then just go to the download page and try either the 586 version or the iso. I don't know what the difference is (all the e-mails I've had from mandrakeclub mention bittorrent technology - I presume that's different from just downloading the iso and burning it to disc).



P.S. I'm gonna do what I always do now, wait until they've released the boxed sets, and get the power pack dvd, like I did for 9.1, then I won't have to mess around looking for any of the commercial stuff that comes in the power pack like nvidia drivers - yess I know that I can get them from nvidia, but I hate messing around with stuff that I don't really understand too much - and the boxed set, gives mandrake a little financial support as well - and I reckon they're worth it.

and RC2 is release candidate 2 - probably the same as the publicly released version, but you never can tell, they may have made last minute alterations

I downloaded them with BitTorrent. It's available on Edonkey too but BitTorrent is much faster in my experience.
