    Why not start with the Starter Guide that comes bundled with Mandriva.
    You'll find it in the start menu under Documentation.

    Right. If you are having problems installing you can ask for help here.
    If you do, try to describe your problem exactly and specify hardware etc.

    You can also google this group. Many beginner problems are covered in the
    archive.

    Have you looked around in the Books section of Install/remove Software.
    Up to 2008.0 there is the mandriva-doc-Starter document.

    In the 2008.1 release there is
    mandriva-doc-Introducin
    mandriva-doc-Mastering-Manual <==== I'd suggest this one.

    For program xref there is
    http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html

    For specific harder tasks there is http://tldp.org
    Example for shell scripting there is http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/index.html

    If you would like a partial index of files already on your system
    here is a script to generate one.

    ------------- script starts below this line through end of post----------

    # Program: create_index.pl - create index.htm of htm*/text files on disk.
    #
    # Purpose: Quick kludge to read list of html/text files and create
    # an index.htm list containing titles for each file opened.
    #
    # PDF and text files are not parsed for title.
    #
    # Assumptions:
    # User or cron has executed /etc/cron.daily/mlocate.cron
    #
    # Install: Save script as create_index.pl
    # chmod +x create_index.pl
    #
    # To run: ./create_index.pl
    #
    # Output: /tmp/index.htm
    #
    # Note: Set $testing non-zero to leave work files and you
    # set which urls to debug in this file.
    # You'll find them at bottom of "locate -i" list.

That will be available from<br /> the mirror, usually in the same place as the Mandriva One. Check the<br /> download, and check the CD after burning it.<br /> <br /> If you have the hard disk space available, I would recommend<br /> downloading the DVD Free 2008.1. If you do not have a DVD<br /> burner, you can copy the boot iso to a CD, boot from that,<br /> and do a hard disk install. Leave your current system intact<br /> (except for shoving stuff out of the way to create disk<br /> paritions necessary for Linux) and use the computer dual-boot<br /> until you decide if Mandriva alone is for you.<br /> <font color="blue"><br /> > My Labtop is a Toshiba Satellite 1800-712<br /> > <a onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Outgoing', 'uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com', '/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=UK&DISC_MODEL=0&com.broadvision.session.new=Yes&PRODUCT_ID=16699']);" rel="nofollow" href="http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=UK&DISC_MODEL=0&com.broadvision.session.new=Yes&PRODUCT_ID=16699" target="_blank">http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.c...ODUCT_ID=16699</a><br /> > upgraded with 256mb xtra ram, but otherwise as it was bought.</font><br /> <br /> Toshiba laptops have a long history of minor incompatibilities<br /> with Mandriva, particularly those with nVidia chipsets on the<br /> video card. Do you know which chipset your video board uses?<br /> <br /> You may also need to disable ACPI (or is it APCI ?). I know<br /> nothing about Mandriva on laptops other than what I remember<br /> from reading this forum, so you may wish to search Google<br /> Groups alt.os.linux.mandriva for solutions to similar problems<br /> earlier.<br /> <br /> Perhaps others can provide more help.
