No, the first 4 CDs of the PowerPack or PowerPack+ are not the same as the 4 CD Official set.

Yes they are fairly identical.

The remaining RPM's from the other disks, are largely available from the URPM repositories.

Go here: http://www.zebulon.org.uk/urpmi_en.html

and follow the directions. They apply to 10.1 as well.

Thanks again opjose. Those router addresse were correct (although I have changed them back to 192.168.1.2). The boot CD worked with the addresses as suggested. However the site only offered Mdk 10.1 Community, not the Official I was wanting. I have not been able to find a site with 10.1 Official so far.

No if you see community, you are looking at the ISO's.

The Official ISO's have not been released as ISO's yet, but the entire RPM tree is up on the repositories.

That means you can download the boot.iso file and perform the installation as if you were installing from a remote source.

You end up with "official".

Angry

its been awhile since my last email to mandrake soft asking :

Will it be avaiable for public download?
When?
and pointing out it has amost been a frikkin month and what is the problem?

and i have recieved nothing . though i used a different email so i wont be on records.

im starting to feel hopeless for mandrake....................

just to think on 10.0 .... it was released to public like 1-2 weeks after it was announced.

mandrakesoft is starting to piss me off......................... starting to download fedora 3 now.............. u know ,just for backup

No, you only need to install it this way on the first computer, then use it as the source for the others.

So your choices are:

1) Buy it.

2) Wait

3) Download from the repositories and burn CD or DVD.

Then choice three is your only option.

Create your own media.
