Dizzy Install log 9:52 PM 6/28/2004 I need to be sure I use the right ISO CD sets! The set I'm using is now the Mandrake 10.0 Official Download (4 discs). Memory Test ----------- Prior to starting the installation, I ran a memory test to ensure the hardware was still behaving properly. I ran MemTest86. Results: Pentium III 730 Mhz L1 Cache 32K L2 Cache 256K Memory: 255 MB Chipset i810e Note 1 MB of 256 is reserved for video RAM All tests passed after I ran the tests for approximately 5 hrs. Reboot w/ Mandrake 10.0 Official Download 1 of 4 Differences between the free Download version and the PowerPack Video drivers (e.g. ATI) Modem drivers
