Question for J.Levie
You were a great help some time ago, when I was trying to install Mandrake Linux 7.1 on a notebook . But, it finally became far more complex than I had time for.

I now have a new machine: an HP Pavilion Notebook: N5472 (same as Omnibook XE3).
 
1. I have succesfully installed Mandrake-Linux 8.2, (download edition), but it is using the  KDE 2.2.2;

2. I have a computer mag CD with the new KDE 3.0 (RPMs);

3. Can you take me a step-by-step so that I can upgrade the older KDE to version 3.0?

Thanks,

Mark Braham

Be sure to check if they are binaries (many magazines put on the cds the sources). If there is no src in the file name, it's ok. You don't have to uninstall KDE 2.2.2. KDE 3.0 installs along KDE 2.2.2, in /opt/kde directory. After mounting your cd-rom and selecting the directory where you have the rpm's.  It's not a good ideea to upgrade KDE within KDE. Do not enter XWindows after logging in. Type "urpmi /path/to/rpms *.rpm". urpmi is better than rmp -i -Uvh, because it automaticaly checks for dependencies. After installing/upgrading, all you have to do is "startx". Good luck.
