2. is there a way to have all my windows partition automaticly mount everytime KDE linux loads as i've set up linux to auto boot kde and not go to the command line as all my mp's,files,docs are on NTFS partitions

The easiest method is to connect the PC to the modem's ethernet port and therefore no driver is required. This requires an ethernet adapter installed in the PC. Use Mandrake Control Center network wizard to setup a LAN connection. Enter the IP address of the router (see manual) and select DHCP. You should be all set.

Usually Mandrake automatically configures windows drives. Look in the /mnt directory to see if any mount points were created.
