Installation advise
 
I real lots of threads asking about installing Mandrake., (other distros as well) . Aafter having used Linux for aprox 5 years I have a few choice words that were given to me in a freebsd forum RTFM. Know your way around your equipment, did you spend a lot of time in Windose esplorer examining files and seeing what they were and what they did? Read everything you can get your hands on, usually the information is there. Learn to use the command line otherwise your makeing things more difficult than they need be adn missing loads of information. I have spent weeks solving configuration issues just because I failed to comprehend what I had read or hadn't read far enough. Linux is a powerrful platform but it is diffeerent than windows, (which is good). Mandrake 10 installs like a breeze with a few tweaks after installation. I was able to install, configure and get shorewall up and running as a firewall/router in about 45 minuets, but then it wasn't my first time, hell I learn something new every evening.
