Bought a Abit-NF7 and tried installing Mandrake 9 on it. The problem is that the machine almost comes to stand still while installing and when it is installed its the same.

Are the later versions of Mandrake 9 and Redhat more suited to this hardware or is there a fix for this?

Any comments would be great:confused:

I installed Redhat 9 on my Soltek Golden Flame nForce2 board , it didnt recognise the onboard lan and took ages , I fixed this by installing a nic and disabled APIC in the bios . runs great .
