Are you dual-booting with Mepis? Is this why you need to boot with floppy? What kind of install? Did you pick packages manually or go for the bundle? Which bundle?

Hi
rrsc16954
After having downloaded four CDs for Mandriva 2007.586.iso and Manriva One -2007-free
Have decided not waste any more computer time with Mandriva
Mandrake 10 was a stable version
Mepis on a disk presents no problem to my system
Video works just fine but Mandriva has problem with Video flasing on and off
Thanks for reply
Maurice

Sorry you are giving up on Mandriva.

2007 is stable for me, running it on 3 boxes and no problems with os.

Rock solid.
