OK, I have mandrake up and running very easy. Only have one problem tho, networking. I know Mandrake has a network wizard, but it keeps wanting my install cd 1. I choose autodetect stuff, ethernet adapter, nvnet for the card then auto/dhcp. THen it asks for the cd, I dont think linux can read the UDF formated CD-RW, cuz it spits it back out. I have a linksys router and I just want dhcp set up so I can get out to the internet. Am I going to have to manually configure? Thanks all, i feel like a dumbass tryin to figure this out!
