well if your serious about linux you'd buy compatible stuff. Anyway i have fedora but i never tried mandrake and i installed that its nice. But i cant use my adsl modem too so i have to unplug my ethernet from my xbox every so often.

I wonder how Linux would work on my desknote. It actually came with some CD...not Lindows, but I can't recall what it was. Perhaps I should try it sometime. Then again, I do some editing on here and need premiere...
