Hi yochenhsieh. I'll add that Trespasser works, for all practical means, perfectly under Cedega in software, and installs effortlessly using Point2Play. The problems I've encountered running Trespasser in hardware, have only worsened.

I experimented with Mdk 10 Community, and though there were several improvements in certain areas, the problems I encountered altogether made me decide against it and go back to Fedora Core 1.

For the last several weeks, I've been using SuSE 9.1 Professional, and have determined, (at least for myself), that SuSE does just about everything better than the other distros I've used. The install is clear and fool proof, a definite plus for new users, and the utilities are equally intuitive and versatile.

Mandrake was my first Linux distro and will alway have a special place in my heart. I hope they've got the bugs in 10.1 straightened out, and it will achieve the heights of greatness that was evident in Mandrake 9.0 :)
