Hi guys, I'm the glad new owner of a 48x24x48/16x DVD combo drive from LG (GCC-4480B). The drive is excellent and is very fast. But I have got a small 2.1GB for a small installation of Linux I previously burned a distro on a CD (Mandrake 8.2) and I was wondering should I go ahead and install 8.2 or get the newer versionm and burn?

Also my CD-RW supports mount rainier, does any version of Linux support it?

In most cases you go better with the newst software and MDK 8.2 can be considerd "outdated" so getting the newest would be a good thing to do.

It is the ability to write to a CDRW without packet writing software (InCD, DirectCD etc.), seems like a very useful feature but many OS's don't support it yet.

Qages the drive I have is not a DVD burner (th0 I wish it was :D) it is a CD burner and DVD drive in one.
