It depends more on what you're hoping to do with it? If a dual-boot with WinXP/NT/2000 is desired, and you're hoping to be able to access your Windoze files from within Linux, the earliest Mandrake could do this was 9.1, I think.

Otherwise, 8.1 is fine, to play around with.

My buddy bought Mandrake 8.1 and he had nothing but problems with it. At least with his comp, took like 4 installs and numerous driver changes and tweaks to get it to even run, id suggest something newer :D

 

Like Fedora :D

 

No problems with mine at allllll :ph34r:
