I tried the kubuntu 5.10 preview. It hung shortly after starting. My limited knowledge wasn't enough to figure out what it was complaining about.
I am searching through ubuntulinux.org FAQ to see what I can find.
I am not familiar with rsync.
Can I install mandrake on another machine and then somehow 'copy' it over? But the h/w is all different?
Besides support, what is the difference between Enterprise and configuring install based on selected packages?

Try the kubuntu (http://kubuntu.org) breezy preview, I believe it has a ver=
recent kernel (vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-386) which has better support for hardware.
Generally I check hardware with knoppix or another live CD (I had a kubuntu=
live CD with me when I bought my laptop) as long as it could see the hard=20
drive I was pretty sure I could get the rest of the system running.

You could also take the hard drive out of the new computer, put it in the o=
computer, rsync the old drive over to the new, and build a kernel that=20
supports your hardware. USB enclosures are awesome for this sort of task=20
(actually they are pretty handy to have around for a variety of tasks).
Hope this helps.
