How install Mandrake 9.2 on an Acer TravelMate 250

I'm sorry, about my english :-)

Here you will find intructions about Mandrake 9.2 and the Acer Travelmate 250 laptop.

If you have knacks, suggestions, me, without the others help I can't use linux on my laptop so we have to return part of the favour.

Spanish version.

Note: Mandrake is nowadays Mandriva.

If you want to install an other Linux distribution on an other laptop visit Linux On Laptops.

It's time to change. You must change to a most actual distribution of Mandriva (or other). I just change to Mandriva 2009.
I don't recommend to install Mandriva 2009 in your old Acer TravelMate 250!!! I've half a giga of RAM and it's not enough to move this distribution. I'm issuing hangs when I do "Save as" operations. I think its about GTK and I don't know why but the laptop doesn't swap. A more appropiate distribution for this old laptop it's Ubuntu o even better XUbuntu.
