    Mandrake 10 is an ancient version! Unlike Windows, where a 5-year-old OS is nothing to complain about, you should always install the latest version of your Linux distro (unless you have some really special reason not to).

    Most likely this old thing plain doesn't support your hardware. The latest free OS in the Mandrake/Mandriva line is Mandriva Free 2007. Download and install that.
     
  3. I can only echo Nodsu, in advising you not to install that. If you want a user friendly Linux that doesn't take all day to download try Ubuntu.
