Well, it had to happen sooner or later with a different beta or release candidate on the website nearly every time I checked! The isos have been uploaded to the following ftp mirror sites. Good luck, most are busy: Czech Republic ftp://mandrake.redbox.cz/Mandrake/iso/ France ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandrake/iso/ (Lyon) ftp://ftp.ciril.fr/pub/linux/mandrake/iso/ (Nancy) Germany ftp://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/Mandrake/iso/ (Esslingen) Iceland ftp://ftp.mbl.is/pub/mandrake/iso/ (Reykjavik) Italy ftp://bo.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/Mandrake/iso/ (Bologna) http://bo.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/Mandrake/iso/ (Bologna) Slovakia ftp://hq.alert.sk/pub/linux/distributions/mandrake/iso/ ftp://spirit.profinet.sk/mirrors/Mandrake/iso/ (Bratislava) Taiwan ftp://mdk.linux.org.tw/pub/mandrake/iso/ United States ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/mandrake/Mandrake/iso/ (North Carolina) ftp://ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrake/iso/ (Georgia) ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/linux/Mandrake/iso/ (Utah) ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/Mandrake/iso/ (Illinois) LATEST: The list of servers offering the iso files have been whittled down! I think they are lying as well, because I am still downloading from the french mirror fr2.rpmfind.net ! Now it reads: Italy ftp://bo.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/Mandrake/iso/ (Bologna) Last modified: Tue Mar 19 01:31:48 2002 The french site was jammed last night, and it took my about 30 tries to finally connect.... I think only about 150 or so users can connect at once..... And usually I get about 12o kbps connection with this server, but now its 20 kbps.... More later if I know more, but apparently this linux is REALLY worth trying out!
