I'm using Mandrake 9 because that's what I *have*; no other reason than 
that. I've heard that 10 is superior to 9, and if I was a smart Linux guy 
... smart enough to know the difference between the two ... I'd probably 
see about going with 10. But I'm not.

BTW ... the installation hung part way through with, as yet, 
incomprehensible gook all over hda1, so I had to remove the non-DOS 
partition, and format the HD after all. I'm in the process of trying to do 
the installation again, right now.
