>From my past experience, Corel is as bad as it gets. I use Mandrake, which
had every single driver i needed last time i installed it. That included
my NIC, sound card, ATI All-In-Wonder card...everything. My cable modem
worked right off the bat, as did my sound and video. I'd recommend
Mandrake to anyone looking for a distro thats easy to install.
