    Is mandriva like windows interface wise?
    Well my Dad will be using it and he hates MAC to the core and likes windows interfaces google images makes me think mandriva has a windows interface.
    When i have downloaded it what do i do?
    Well it is an old laptop Dad wants to burn it on to a cd and boot from cd.
    Is it easy as that?
    Thanks

    You can set interface of any Linux Distribution the way you like.
    2.When i have downloaded it what do i do?
    You have to burn downloaded .iso image to CD/DVD. Do not extract .iso file. Select Burn Image to Disk option in your CD/DVD Burner package. Boot up machine from that CD/DVD to load it.
    Well it is an old laptop Dad wants to burn it on to a cd and boot from cd.
    Post specs of Laptop. We have to check if Mandirva is compatible to your Lappy.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
