    Mandrake 9.2 is Final and is available for download for Mandrake Club members. It will be available for free download by the end of the month.
    IMHO it is "the most" comprehensive Linux suite with almost everything. it is equally good for newbies and hardcore Linux lovers.
    Anyone who is just starting with Linux should start with Mandrake as he/she will have the best time adapting along with learning new tricks.

    I just posted that about 10 min ago.:hammer: :hammer:

    I also asked where a better place to download it is at.

    Its at ftp.thetechguide.com although it cut out on me after about an hour of downloading.

    I was also wondering what program I should use that helps you when you are downloading and disconnected it will just reconnect and start where you left off.

    Thanks,
    Chez:cheers:

    Thanks guys. I am on it. I will try it out.
    I tried that site again and it dropped me after about an hour or so.
    So I guess 9.2 isn't happenning from there.

    Whats the difference between i586 and PPC. I assume it is for MAc and PC.
    And I should get the 3 CD download?

    Thanks,
    Chez

    PPC is Mac, and yes, you should get all 3 CDs. :)

    a bit of info about mdk 9.2:
    October 24th, 2003 - Important notice! - Several users have reported a big issue with LG Cd-rom drives used with Mandrake Linux 9.2: these CD-rom drives are not compliant with ATAPI specification and therefore can be damaged. All details, future updates and possible fix related to this issue are available at this page. Other Cd-rom drives are not affected by this issue.

    there is also a mdk 9.2 beta2 for amd64 available
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon/
    you can now upgrade your Mandrake Linux 9.1 install to 9.2 without d/ling full ISOs and no it is not like a Windows upgarde with all the dll's lying around ;).
