    I don't think you'll get any knocks on your door as long as your watching DVD's you've either bought or rented but should you decide to use libdvdcss for means of reproducing/redistributing DVD's they'll come a knocking.

    i had similar funny problems with xandros , and surprizingly with slakware
    and ubuntu distros.

    i wasted all those cd's burning the image files. But non of them got installed.

    These images .iso's came with a reputed PC mag. I know how u r feeling.
    Now have settled for mandrake 9.2 untill someone gives me someting tested and working on their system.

    @ Cool Surfer,
    did you try the noapic and acpi=off options? Also, did you check the md5sum of the iso's before burning?

    If you like Mandrake, try Mandrake 10.1 or if you want a different rpm based distro, try SuSE.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
