Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris A few months ago we wrote a full review of the Lycoris Desktop/LX operating system, but many releases happened since then and some things have changed. The Lycoris folks sent us the latest official version (+ online patches), we tested it, and here is what we think about it.

Installation problems

Eugenia, I'm just curious if your BIOS was set up as 'yes' for a plug & play aware OS. I remember after crashing my Suse install that Suse support (yes, they do exist:) asked me to set that parameter to 'no' while installing the OS after which things were fine. I have only seen vmware in action once, so I think it emulates the entire bootup process (BIOS & all)? If it does that, you might want to compare the default BIOS settings in vmware to that in your physical BIOS.
