The author of the review notes, at the end, that installing Pardus prevented him from accessing his mandriva os.
Only one word of advise for Mandriva Linux beginners (like myself): if you have a dual boot (Mandriva-Windows) and you install Pardus, you lose your access to Mandriva because the Pardus grub won't let you see Mandriva. Likewise, after I restored the Mandriva grub, I couln't find Pardus. I'm sure there must be a way to triple boot, but that is right now beyond my limited knowledge.<end quote>
I hope that the developers can overcome this.
There are many posts on many forums about "booting".
Unfortunately they seem too complex(to me)
I would really like someone to point me to an article that explains in very great detail, but lucidly, how "chain loading" overcomes this.
