    And thank you too ... That's very kind of you.

    I can't help with the 3D stuff as I've never tried that for a desktop. I think you need OpenGL installed to start with. I suspect that it'll run in either Gnome or KDE, though all the articles I've read about this suggest that KDE is well supported.

    If you play around with your package management system - called urpm - that's a good place to start for getting things going. There are a lot of tutorials available on the web and there's a guide to installing software on these forums, including how to use urpm.

    You might need to think about what kind of graphics hardware you're running. Graphics cards / drivers are a common cause of problems for new users, and for me.

    Heh ... reminds me of a song. 'I'll hang a sign on my hotel room door. It's okay to disturb me: that's what I came here for!'

    Seriously though, you might be able to set up 3d effects by going into the Mandriva Control Centre and select drak3d (or whatever it's called). I think you can chose different 3d engines. It's probably not too hard.

    If you get really stuck you might want to start a new thread.
