	Mandrake 9.1 is a much better Package than 9.0. If you do move up to 9.1 Save your '/home' directory and clean out the rest, 9.0 to 9.1 upgrading can cause problems(Do a clean *install* of 9.1). If you choose to stick with 9.0 choose *upgrade* to add your development lib's.  In ether instance the development library's install from the 1st CD install. Look in the choices on the left side of the GUI installer screen, select Development*.
	The printing in Mandrake is hard to beat, so i think you have the correct distro.
