I just got Mandrake 8.2 download and on cd's. How exactly do I go about installing it under VPC? I have VPC 5 just so you know.

Okay I'm sorry I have to ask. Why not just install a PPC linux for the Mac?

Because that requires reformatting your hard drive(therefore you lose all your files). It is simpler just to install on VPC, as you can create a new hard drive image.

If your going to install linux...and you want the best (Mandrake, not PPC there is only one thing to do)
Install Mandrake and run it without an emulator!
With mandrake, and os x being able to run on the same drive...what more is there to ask for...you have OS X...plus the best Linux build!
