Theoretically it's possible but practically, it probably isn't coz packages on the the CD's maybe required for dependency resolution etc.

I don't really know what packages are on CD1 and 2, but maybe they could be good enough to do a minimal install then you can then install other packages you need from the net via urpmi.

You *can* install a basic system with just CD1. I haven't tried it, myself, though. It may just leave you at a command prompt when it's done: no gui. Then again, you may get at least a minimal gui that way. You *certainly* won't get all the bells and whistles.

For anyone who does anything less than the three-CD install, I strongly recommend visiting EasyUrpmi and setting up your repositories, so you can easily get the rest of the software you want.

mandrake 10.1 install

10.1 will install with just CD1 - I'm using it now.

GUI start OK, but a few problems with some applications.

No problems with most, including OpenOffice, browsers, etc.

Ja, just chose the minimal amount of packages possible when installing. I know for MDK 10 KDE was on disc 1 anyhow, er I think . .
