Thanks a lot guys for the help. The one thing I have noticed compared to the last Linux I installed which was Red Hat 6.1 if I am not mistaken. Redhat wasn't that bad just more tedious to install at least compared to mandrake.
Anyway lets hope this is a somewhat painless experience. I have alos heard that they are getting ready to start distrubution of Mandrake 9.0 otherwise known as Dolphin. And thanks for welcoming me to the stable side. HeHe M$ isn't exactly the king of peaceful grin if you know what I mean.
I will try these steps this weekend, should a great learning experience.
