I think you should ask on the mandriva forum. It's fairly good but high end
knowledge can take a couple of days to appear.
There were 2 versions of 2008.1 on mandriva for download early last year. One
came with more video and audio features etc than the other. There was also a
link in one of the user forums to sort out this sort of thing. This may not
be the official mandriva forum and is highly likely to make use of unofficial
repositories. Sorry can't help more than that. I ran it for a while under
virtual box early last year. You should be able to find the site listed on
the mandriva web site.
A silly question but the audio cd output may only be taken from the digital
lead of the cd or it can be generated another way. Can't help you there but I
have had that problem on a couple of distro's and it was down to how the low
level audio was set up. Again the mandriva forum should be able to help. This
sort of thing can be very distro specific.
