Question Mandrake 9.0

Anybody know of a place to get a cd of this without paying the $30 or whatever it is... i mean, since the download is free anyway. I spent 3 days downloading the ISO on my crappy 56k modem, and then it didn't even work! ARGH! Help, please.

Try surfing your local linux forums - I know there's a nice guy here in aus willing to burn the iso to a cd and mail it to you for the cost of the blank and posting. if your in a resonable size city, you might be able to find a linux user group you could hook up with. they could do you a copy.. anyway, have a look around forums. being on another contentent, it's probably not worth your while me sending you the copys, but if you're in aus too I wouldn't mind.

btw, mandrake 9 is definatly worth a look - was playing with it last night and everything works very nicely

I'm in the Washington D.C. area (southern maryland). Is there anyone around who lives near me that wouldn't mind doing something like that?

Default Ebay has cheap copies

A lot of people on ebay are offering many different distros for 5-10 dollars. I am sure you can get the latest download releases of any of them there.

i've been saying since win 3.1, if this screws up on me 1 more time, i'm throwing the computer out the window... now i know Linux, so i've been saying if Windows screws up one more time... I'm switching!

How well does Linux handle games? I'm going to do a dual boot so i can still do everything, but i'd like to be primarily on linux
