Looking good so far. I installed the ONE KDE cdrom and everything works quite well.
However, the grub install needs to be fixed.Problems I had
1. It installed in the MBR even though I told it to install to /dev/hda3
2. Did not detect the other linux install I had. This is something that Mandriva has always failed to do. Seems they don't want to fix it in this release either.

If this post seems negative, it isn't. Those were the only things I have found wrong so far.

Log-off/system restart brings kernel panic, KDE4 preview doesn't really do anything with the icons on the desktop
