Hi All:
This is my first time here.I have installed Linux before version 8 but,unistalled it because ofthe learning curve.Shouldn't have done it.Anyways.I am getting all the info manuals and anything else I need,so that I can just install update and go.My real question is:After checking out info on Mandrake 10.1 which I have the disks.I ran across afew sites and forums that said: after ver 9.2 things started breaking and having problems up to version 10.1. Version 9.1 was supposed to be better and more reliable and stable ver.I am not a linux expert. Yet.I'm in diapers here.can anyone please tell me the if this true?If it is. I am going to install ver 9.1 instead of 10.1
for those who want to know my hardware setup to see if that makes any difference.Here it is:Please Let me know!
Thankyou in advance
