    hi,
    you should take a look at some HOWTO doents, which are also available
    in french. take a look at [url]http://www.freenix.fr/unix/linux/HOWTO/[/url]
    especially the

    French-HOWTO
    Hardware-HOWTO
    Installation-HOWTO
    Kernel-HOWTO
    Configuration-HOWTO
    Win95+Win+Linux

    should help.

    Mandrake vs Debian?
    well, hard to tell, depends on what you want.
    i prefer debian.
    take a look at:
