I'm going to give Linux another shot but it's been awhile.  And while it purports to be more user friendly, I can't seem to get off of square zero.  Could someone give me the address of an ftp site that has the latest iso of Mandrake, with good bandwidth, and also tell me EXACTLY which folders go on which cd.  I've found folders that say iso image but don't know if the parent folder is included in the iso or just a storage folder on the ftp.  I can't help but wonder how much faster linux would evolve in popularity if it had a start button. I've been more than ready to jump from Windows but never seem to find a plain simple way to acquire the program.  Thanks.

Download ftp://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/OS/Linux/Dist/Mandrake/mandrake/iso/Mandrakelinux-10.0-Community-Download-CD1.i586.iso
ftp://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/OS/Linux/Dist/Mandrake/mandrake/iso/Mandrakelinux-10.0-Community-Download-CD2.i586.iso
ftp://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/OS/Linux/Dist/Mandrake/mandrake/iso/Mandrakelinux-10.0-Community-Download-CD3.i586.iso and use your cdburner to burn the images onto 3 cdroms labeled 1 2 & 3. Note you need to select the option to burn an iso image, not just burn the iso files onto a cdrom. In ahead nero choose "other cdformats" in the wizard and then "create a cd from an image file"
Then just boot your pc with cd1 in the drive and follow the instructionms :)

Thanks. One click, one image.  Every time I looked for the images before, I got folders with more folders, and so on, instead of a single iso file.
