    yes it will let you dualboot & should detect all your hardware,just make sure you download the nvidia drivers for your graphics card

    personally, i wouldnt call mandriva's distros stable.

    unless they got a HELL of a lot more stable after mandrake 10.

    i still would go debian based, though.

    I would try MEPIS. Easy install process. Lets you boot as a live CD and install if you want to. Easy to dual boot, and has a lot of extra stuff. Such as 3D drivers for ATI and Nvidia cards.
    There is no problem so complicated that you cannot find a very simple answer to it if you look at it in the right way

    They did. At least for me. I had all sorts of stability problems with Mandrake 10, and none with Mandriva 2006. Give it a shot if you have the time. You might be impressed.

    I second this. Mepis is in my opinion, the most user friendly Debian based distro out there.

    thanks . I will certainly give it a go. (today is the first day of the school holidays for me).
    i just hope they changed the colour scheme...
    But for the moment, i am sticking with ubuntu 5.10 and dsl 2.

    ps: you were right on that review of slackware you did. you made me switch to debian based distros which i must thank you for .

    thanks techieMoe!

    Fedora or Mandiva in my opinion are easy to use...
