I remember back in the day, mandrake Linux was my first *nix experience
running on an old version of vmware workstation, was still doing wintel

time flies, been 3 years since ive touched a windows support request @ work
but back to the point, I agree that mandriva/mandrake is a very good, easy
to use distro.
Could this be a pebkac issue maybe ?
