    Actually Lycoris is one of the first two Linux distros that I want to try, Mandrake 9.0 is the other, as its reported to be the easiest to setup plus very much like XP in looks and function. ;)

    I have just installed it. I am a newcomer to Linux and very much feeling my way. I have Mandrake 9 on another harddrive and Lycoris on this one. It looks like XP, it handles like XP, and it does most of what XP does. I can't use my scanner (mainly because Canon won't release the driver info) and as always I am having trouble getting the supplied burner programme to work.

    I have had two 'hangs' both times while opening Mozilla. It uses the KDE interface and it is very user friendly.

    Here's a screen shot... better than XP I think!

    Dang, That is spooky. The only thing missing is the MSMessenger icon complaining that you have'nt created an account. :cool:

    Yeah I got Mandrake 9.0 as well and System Commander turned up finally so I'll see how I go with 5 different oses on the old K6-3+ (most ppl can screw up well enough with 1 but I'll see if I can do better ;) ). I'm tryin' a few flavours to see what will suit certain ppl as soon I'm likely to be asked to supply PC's with some form of Linux on them. :devil:

    If someone can post how to get the burner programme on Lycoris going (KonCD) I really would appreciate that.

    Wiggo you'll love Mandrake 9... I have it on another drive and it's great.

    Well the old K6-3+ said that it was finally time for that rebuild that I've been puttin' off for sometime now so the new server is in place and the K6-3+ is back alive naked on the shelf in the workshop here while it waits for me to mod the case a bit more then it'll be time for some multiboot madness. :D
