We installed Mandrake's MNF 8.2 here at work and found it easy to install, very secure and easy to maintain. See:
http://people.mandrakesoft.com/~amaury/mnf/8.2.php
It can be freely downloaded from a Mandrake mirror.

Hi Don,
RH 5.2 was nice but it is VERY OLD. It would be like going back to Windows 286.
You can download the Mandrake 9.1 three CD ISO set for free from Mandrake or you can go to CheapBytes and purchase the set for around $5.

Ali,
I had the same problem trying to install Mandrake 9.0 on my new DELL GX260 box. I could only get a reliable xserver going if I kept the resolution 660X800 or less, and XFDrake wouldn't help.
I think it was an MDK 9.0 specific problem since MDK 8.2 worked perfectly on this box and MDK 9.1 works even better!! In fact, MDK 9.0 failed to install on xserver on all six boxes I tried to install it on, while MDK 9.1 slid like a silk glove onto each of them.

Hi Francois Bourgault,
I run W2K and MDK 9.1 dual boot on a Dell GX260 just fine. My box has a 40GB HD, which a partitioned into four parts, keeping W2K on the first part and using the remainder for MDK.

Hi everyone,
I have installed Jdeveloper debugger in Windows XP professional. My project folder is in Unix system. I could open my project folder in the Jdeveloper installed in Windows XP because i have done network mapping. But whenever I goto project settings, jdeveloper gives me error message " invalid K:\project\COM". where project\COM is under my home dir of UNIX system and I have mapped it to K drive and I can access K:\project\COM in Windows explore.
I am not able to do any project setup in the Jdeveloper for K:\project\COM because Jdeveloper is saying it is invalid. But under project settings--common--input paths--java source paths, i can access K:\project\COM. Please suggest me how to proceed.
thanks


mmm... I am running JDev under both W2K and Mandrake 9.1. I use CVSNT and WinCVS or Tortoise on W2K and Cervesia under MDK. Runs great. It is faster running under MDK.
You might try putting the path in double quotes and also doubling up on the backslashes.
