I have no idea why Mandrake always gets errors. I hear its the best but I'm wanting to yell because the installation doesn't work. I'm trying to install this distro on my old lappy that HAD M.E. on it. All the other linux distros install correctly except this one.

#1 i tried my friends install cds (1, 2 ,3)
Got to what I wanted on it (like gaming platform, media platform, etc) AND THEN IT GIVES ME .PNG errors. (community.png error, welcome.png error).

So I try:

#2 Download DVD Installer (downloaded it and used my dvd burner)
Got to the partioning and it did it automaticly and was going on to what I wanted on it like the gaming platform, medkia platform, etc... and gave an error like the listing was invalid.

I really want to try this distro... is there a site that will mail linux distros to you instead of d/ling them?

Try - They will burn CDs and post them to you. Sites like that also show up in the google ads at the top of the page quite often.

Not sure about the install probs though
