Smile Mandrake 8.2 first time user...

Hi All,

Well as the heading might suggest I am running Mandrake 8.2 for the first time. I am actually dual-booting WinXP and Mandrake 8.2.
WinXP is on the first partition and Mandrake on the second.

Aside from general advice in terms of updates, what do you suggest I use in terms of drivers and where should i go.

Oh and before i forget everything worked for the most part, internet etc.. except I haven't tried any games because it is using the GeForce3 generic driver. I was able to however run the resolution at 1600x1200@76Hertz. My monitor goes higher than that but my knowledge with Mandrake is nil to none.

What steps should i take now in terms of updating drivers, software updates. I selected everything when i installed it. The only module that failed to load or shut down is the proftp module.
Otherwise it looks fine.

Any help in this would be great....
