Introduction
Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrakelinux or Mandrake Linux) is a French Linux distribution distributed by Mandriva (formerly Mandrakesoft). It uses the RPM Package Manager. The product lifetime of Mandriva Linux releases is 18 months for base updates (Linux, system software, etc.) and 12 months for desktop updates (window managers, desktop environments, web browsers, etc.). Server products receive full updates for at least 24 months after their release.

Mandriva Linux contains the Mandriva Control Center, which eases configuration of some settings. It has many programs known as Drakes or Draks, collectively named drakxtools, to configure many different settings. Examples include MouseDrake to set up a mouse, DiskDrake to set up disk partitions and drakconnect to set up a network connection. They are written using GTK+ and Perl, and most of them can run in both graphical and text mode using the ncurses interface.

Hands-on Lab Solution:
In this Hands-on Lab session, you’ll learn how to setup virtual network on VMware (you may also use any other virtual machines like MS VirtualPC, Linux Xen, or VirtualBox from Oracle, or Citrix XenServer). In this lab session, we’ll concentrate on installing Mandriva Linux 2010 Spring server which you can then later use to install any other applications as desired. After completing the initial installation I’ll show you how to install DNS server, LAMP server, and Samba file server. You will also learn how to install and secure SFTP using TSL and finally install and secure MySQL database server. You’ll also have opportunity to learn some troubleshooting techniques and also do some lab assignments at the end of the lab session.
