    why not try some of the official mirrors?
    some of them have quite good speeds. :)
    i think that LG CD-ROM bug took them so long but now LG has released the fixes.

    at the official mirrors the best I can hope to get is ~20-40 KB/s. Or I could wait till Linuxiso.org releases it's mirrors and I can get my usual 300+ KB/s and download them in a fraction of the time. Not to mention I get a md5sum value to check my downloads against to make sure I don't get corrupted downloads. I don't see anything like that on mandrake's site (although I'm sure it's there somewhere)

    *I just tried one of the official US mirrors anyway and I got 3.2 KB/s and it would have take over 58 hrs to dl at that rate (reminds me of my dial-up days). So like I said, I'll wait till tomorrow and download it in under 1 hr :)

    wooh!!! well never knew that those mirrors can be so slow but then i never get anything above 4KB/s
    about MD5SUM: actually mandrake official mirrors carry them as a separate file. it is an unavoidable thing for any Linux distro and is usually there in the same folder that carry ISO images.

    How is the HCL on Mandrake 9.2? I have had problems with Red Hat 8.0 detecting my network cards, and it doesn't like my video card either (although there are Linux drivers on the nVidia site)

    i still havn't got 9.2 yet, but in 9.1 I didn't have any problems with my onboard nics (nforce2 mobo) and the nvidia drivers for my video card were simple to install and worked just fine.

    *actually, let me clarify the nics: the onboard 3com nic worked right from the start. I had to download and install the nvidia nforce2 linux driver (which was very simple as well) to get access to the onboard nvidia nic

    it's entirely possible that native supprt for nforce2 mobos has improved with 9.2, but I really don't know for sure. drivers for graphics cards has probably stayed about the same though; you get a basic nvidia driver and then get the real driver from nvidia and install it

    I just found out for myself how good the HCL for it is...I installed it with no problem, now the only problem is I don't know what's up or what's down, and I don't know what executables to use anymore, lol
