I wouldn't order them from mandrakestore. they seem to be a bit flaky. if you want to give them financial support, join the mandrake club. there are many very cheap places on the net that burn the cds for you if you don't want to download them. There was in fact a thread about those sites here on the forum a few days ago. just search.
cheers.

with 9.1 a whole bunch of people were complaining of super slow delivery and complete lack of response to inquiries. When you join the club, you can download everything that comes with the power pack edition using urpmi from mandrake club.
