Mandrake 9.0 vs. Mandrake 8.2 for new users

If only it were that easy.
I stick the coaster (CD #1) into the cupholder (CD Drive) and look at the install screen. It's similar to the one I saw in earlier Mandrake versions, with its choice of upgrade, rescue or full install. I choose full install by hitting "Enter." The install begins. Mindlessly, I click on the default choices as I begin, and partitions are created automatically, with my 12 GB hard drive split more or less equally between / and /home (ext3) partitions separated by a 243 MB swap partition. Nothing radical, no work to do, no thought required. It has been a while since partitioning was a concern for new Linux users who chose "commercial" distributions, and this latest Mandrake has made the partitioning process literally invisible unless you choose the "expert" option.
