the version is ok, and is the latest non beta version. The most imp issue
that u need to know is that though mandrake claim to be 99% rh compatible,
it is not so rh compatible. This can cause problems if u r used to rh and
then switch to mandrake. Also make sure that you don't select the paranoid
security mode under mandrake. It is only for the paranoid!!! Under vmware, u
might hav problems with the x display, otherwise everything else is smooth.
