    Burning Mandrake CD


    Hello People!


    I have decided to install Mandrake Linux. I went to Distromania, and downloaded Madrake Linux 10.2 RP1 . It comes in a RAR file. So I use WinRAR to uncompress it. When I finish uncompressing the three files, I have millions of files... Which ones should I burn to a CD? Where is the Iso to burn??? PLEASE HELP...

    hi - welcome to the linux world.
    mandrake 10.2 is a beta version - not yet released for general use. hence, as a first time user, you should avoid it . instead use the latesest stable version which is 10.1. choose the official version. you can download the iso from here:
    http://iso.linuxquestions.org/distro.php?distro=3
    the files are .iso files and can be burnt with usual cd burners without trouble.

    you may also wish to try this distro - it is only one cd and the migration from windows to this distro is effortless and it seems to work out of the box and needs very little configuration.
    www.elxlinux.com - elxlinux biz 4.0. it is again a free download.
