    I have installed Remond only one time, I am a Solaris/Slackware man myself. Try starting from scratch on a machine with nothing on it

    I think you'd be better off installing mandrake, lycoris is an interesting idea but from the reviews I've seen it's lacking a lot of the apps you get in a more mature distro.

    Cool. I think you'll find that mandrake will do a good job of detecting your hardware as well.

    I hate to be the one to tell you this...but...mandrake 8.2 is about to be released...it's only a week or so away...it's not as bad as it sounds, you can use the rpm's from cooker to update.
