My recommendation is to avoid Mandrake.
I tried to install Man 9.2 on my new gateway/firewall and it never did work
Among other things, it set the default route to go to my internal network
instead of the internet.
Shorewall never did allow Samba to work properly, even when I allowed my
internal connection to be trusted.
Mandrake wanted to set up my internal network using DHCP, even though I use
static IP addresses, and it kept doing this even when I told it not to.
Basically, the install was so "simple" that it didn't give me tools to set
things up the way I wanted when that was different from the Mandrake
After fighting with it for 3 days I went back to Redhat 7.3 (old, but I had
the disks handy) and 30 minutes after the basic install everything was
working properly. It would take an awful lot to make me try Mandrake again.
