I hope it is not. Mandriva Power Pack should be sold, not downloaded for free. If Mandriva wishes to make money by selling the Power Pack, it would be unethical to just offer it for free. It would also be unethical to download it.

Here is a thought swanee, leave 2007 alone and install 2006. I used to dual boot on my Athlon 3.8-64bit with Linux installed to a PCI raid set of 4x40Gb ata disks. Was given on old Athlon 1.6x32, moved the raid set to that box fresh installed 2006 as a server with Samba etc, and have not had a scrap of bother with it. A friend of mine Graham Charles, proprieter of MonarTech in SA, Winslows guru, php sql etc, thinks 2006 just real good. So good he is slowly advising his corporate clientelle to move the back office stuff over to it. Even uses it on his in-shop internet kiosk machine, used to give tourists free access for photo uploads etc. keep on with 2007 if you must, but for my money 2006 is as stable as Uluru.

regards shorty943.

Is it really any easier for a semi newbie (used 10.1 for about a year) than 2007 or do I just need to keep at it until I am more profound with Linux?????

Ya know I used urpmi to install the nvidia drivers this time and it worked perfectly. Was quite pleased as I watched things unfold. Had to answer a few questions but it was well thought out and was straightforwards and through. It just worked. For me at least
