You aren't getting much response.... I'm sorry but I haven't got mandrake 9.0. I'm a mandrake lover but I had so much trouble with 8.2 so I installed rh 7.3 which I don't like at all. I'd like to try 9.0 but how? The ISOs are over 700mb and do not fit on a cd. And it would take forever thru the net. How did you get it on your computer?
