I can recall having 2 problems the last time I tried Man[drake|drive]. It was
Mandrake 9.2 just over a year ago (previous use was in 2002-2004/5). First I
had to refresh the menu from the command-line (no big deal), but later I
messed about with the partitions editor without being careful and I botched
it. I then installed Ubuntu, later to be replaced with SUSE.
