"I have been watching the Mageia development since it was first announced. As soon as I saw that Mageia 1 had gone from a release candidate to a final release I started the Transmission torrent download of three of the ISO files to keep and used one of them (mageia-dvd-1-i586.iso) to check it out with VirtualBox.

"So, you are a Linux Newbie and want to know if Mageia is easy to install? Below is a 96.4 MB / 15 minute MPEG video to show installation of Mageia. Some of you may be relieved to know there is no sound, meaning no inane comments. I do not do a 'guru' install. The only choices I make are those a new user might make. As one can see the GUI installer is very Newbie friendly. A time or three the mouse pointer in the VirtualBox window got out of sync with the mouse pointer on my desktop. That is the only glitch I noticed."
