      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. My problem is as follows: I am installing mdk 10 on a 40gb hdd with an old intel 750 slot chip sitting on a 440bx chipset old motherboard whose bios i cannot find a new upgrade for and therefore hangs at bios stage tying to detect the hdd on auto. I hv to set it to none. So anyway, my objective is to install mandrake on the hdd as normal using new installation, erase all existing partitions. However since only linux can detect the harddisk, I completed the installation but know that it cannot boot cos it cannot read the hdd. I tried to make a boot iso disk but not successful. Basically I am asking if anyone can guide me how to make a bootdisk (floppy or cd) that will start up linux, then moint the harddisk and partitions etc and run from there. Help please, I am a newbie at Linux. Trying to escape from the clutches of 20 years of ms dos to winxp. arrrgh thanks [Edit: I have removed your old post and the link to it - spinynorman]
