I have already downloaded Mandriva 2008.  Hey, it may not be the most
secure thing but I bet it is more secure than windoze since he can't
install Service Pack 3.  Long story on that.  Anyway, after I got about
3/4 of that downloaded, I found a website that lists what is available
on the Mandriva 2009 DVD.  It "claims" it has KDE 3.5 as well as KDE 4. 
I'm downloading it too.  I got a old rig that I'm going to test all this
on first.  Sort of a trial run.  I'll keep PCLinuxOS in mind tho.  I may
end up with Gentoo in the end but just not right now.  He needs a better
CPU cooler first. 

This is funny in a way.  Before I got DSL, this download would have
taken weeks to do.  It's still taking about 15 hours but it's a LOT
faster than dial-up.  I figured it up one time, 26 times faster than
dial-up.  I wouldn't have even tried to download this DVD over dial-up. 
Even a CD would take several days.
