    With Mandriva - as it's now called - you'd be much better off installing the latest 2007 version. There are a few reasons for this:
    • you'll have better support for updates (there probably aren't any for version 10.*)
    • more features
    • fewer bugs
    • better hardware support
    • more up-to-date advice on here
    • much easier (and safer) when updating to the next version when you want to

    Even version 2006 has pretty poor support now (I still use it though ). I would look for 2007.1 on dvd if you can find it.
