"Networking has always been the simple solution for sharing resources, but implementing a network has never really been an easy task. Linux-Mandrake Corporate Server claims to solve that problem by offering "a complete enterprise solution... [that] includes everything you need to rapidly deploy world-class Linux server applications in the enterprise." But does Mandrake Corporate Server deliver? After a week with the product we can give it a resounding "yes, maybe."

The first real hurdle for Corporate Server is the download. The package is offered for download as ISO CD image files--484MB for the installation disc and 647MB for the second disc. You'll also need a CD burner and software to write the images to CD.

Installing Corporate Server is one of the best autopilot experiences you're likely to have. MandrakeSoft has created a credible GUI installer that relegates almost every input choice to point and click selection--the only exceptions are user IDs and passwords. Tips are even provided at the bottom of the screen, although they're only context-sensitive when you're running a custom install."
