?download mandrake 10?

Recommended Posts

eccofresh    6

I want to download mandrake 10 but on all the ftp mirrors on the mandrake site I just see the direcotry structure and no ISO images. Should I just download all the files and directorys? and then how would I make that bootable and I thought that mandrake would have a bunch of cds, so what do i have to download?

then again on most of the ftp mirrors for mandrake 10 move i found ISO images for Mandrake 10. there were images for disk 1, disk 2 and disk 3. Do I only need 3cds or am I missing something if I download those cds?

Files details:

680822784 MandrakeLinux-10.0-rc1-CD1.i586.iso

681543680 MandrakeLinux-10.0-rc1-CD2.i586.iso

677996544 MandrakeLinux-10.0-rc1-CD3.i586.iso

446 MandrakeLinux-10.0-rc1.i586.iso.md5sums.asc

Either run through the mirrors, or put the filenames into filemirrors.com and see what pops up.

I'll update this post if I actually find any ;)

Edit://

Seems there are also files called:

Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download-CD1.i586.iso

Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download-CD2.i586.iso

Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download-CD3.i586.iso

Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download-CD4.i586.iso

Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download.md5

You may need 4 if the above is true, Ive only ever gotten MDK 10 through magazines on a cover DVD so cant help

Try Linuxiso.org also, Im checking there now.

those are the 3 image I was talking about that I found in the ftp sites for the move download. So I only need 3cds, right?
