Well after Slackware caused my pubes to be torn out in massive chunks... My tryst with Red Hat began aaaaannnnnd ended abruptly after it would not get past install.
Then my soul began to darken to the jovial color of a 99 cent burrito. It sang. Yes ladies and gentlemen, my soul began to sing a song of Del Taco... but this is very much another story altogether. My argument at hand is that Mandrake 8.0 was a seamless install, with NO problems involving Hardware, ISP Goo, or the infamous "Burrito Envy".
