Can anybody here be kind enough to lend me a copy of 8.2? Or for those that aren't kind...I'll send you money for a copy.

why don't you download a copy yourself?  You can get it from Mandrake's site at:  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftptmp/1018969321.b169113d068a3ee7d01a70f644e02d43.php

Really?! But how do I do it? Do I have to download it while I'm in Linux? Or can I be using Windows and then download it and then burn it to a cd? I just bought 8.1 powerpack a month ago. Does this mean that if I download this and install it...it will downgrade it to basic 8.2?

Yes you can d/l it using windows.

If you use CuteFTP or any other win FTP client, you just point your ftp to a mirror site and grab an 8.2 ISO.  Then you can burn this ISO and install linux from there.

You mean I can't just download it like a normal file? I have to first have cuteFTP to do it? And if I install it...will it upgrade my current installation or downgrade it? Remember...I have 8.1 powerpack. I'm sure this download isn't a powerpack...I'm I right? And if its for download for such a small price...why does it cost like $70 at the stores?

1. go to http://www.linux-mandrake.com
2. find a list of their mirror sites
3. log into one of their mirrors using ftp
4. go to the location where the mandrake 8.2 isos are stored
5. download the isos (3 total = install, exp, supp)
6. burn the isos
7. boot from cd and install

Ok renegade. Let me guess this straight because I never done anything like this before. You want me to download 1,2 and 3? And then copy 1 to a CD? And 2 to another CD? And 3 to another CD? And then boot up computer from CD and voila!? Just like that? Will this downgrade my 8.1 powerpack? ( very Important that I know this ). Would it be better if I just bought the powerpack at the store or is it the same thing?

I burned ISO #1 and then booted from CD. It didn't work! It didn't let me boot from the CD. Now what?

What program are you using to burn this ISO?  You need to select BURN FROM IMAGE on whatever software you're using.
