duddywoody, please provide a more detailed post of what stage of the Mandriva install you have got to. Also what is the make of the onboard graphics (or provide the motherboard model).

Your fedora problem needs to be posted in the correct forum.

If you are attempting to boot the 'Live CD' do the following: Press Alt+Ctrl+F1, then login: root password: root. Now type: XFdrake and press enter. Press enter again then find and select the Vesa driver and press enter to get back to the main menu. I suggest you do a test before closing the main menu. Type: exit and press enter to leave root mode. Do Alt+F7 you should now have a display.
