  1. Hey FireFreek I think your RAM is pretty low for Mandriva 2009.0 ONE and yes I am also a user of Mandriva 2009 ONE though KDE but Mandriva 2008.1 spring is much better and stable than this edition. As the major disadvantage of 2009 ONE is it does not have printer support. Ok here is how to install it:-(there may be other ways but I prefer this one) Step 1: Install Windows on the primary drive let us consider C: Step 2: Boot with Mandriva 2009 ONE cd and click on the install follow the steps they are quite easy for a newbie also. Step 3: When it will show a screen for boot loader it asks you where to load the boot loader there you have to state MBR(option will be present just select it) As a windows user you might be knowing that windpws keeps its boot information in MBR(Master Boot Record). And then the main part is over Rest you can do. If you want help in Partitioning then ask I will help you out.

Hey I tried the method you have mentioned but it is asking me for PIN code but my device does not have any SIM card in it as it supports only data transmission. and If i give 0000 as pin then it is saying no SIM present.
