Question ? Installing mandrake 9.1 on the Lex CV860A System ?   [

 First of all - you need to realize that the CV860A has a Via C3 Ezra CPU which is a 486 Based CPU, with some Pentium extension. So most things will work.
The Installation will make no problems - however - as soon as you reboot the System - it will crash badly - especially if you have a USB Wireless Lancard using the Amtel Chipset (this was my case).
I found out - that the usb subsystem was the cause of the problems - so deactivating it on boot appending: nousb to the lilo-command line - did the trick. What was required to do - was to deactivate the usb-uhci driver loading if the modules for the Wireless Interface was to be loaded (Which was the cause of the problem) and use the uhci module. Do this with changing the probeall USB line in the etc/modules.conf file to:

# Wireless Lan stuff
probeall usb-interface uhci
post-install usbvnetr /bin/fastvnet.sh

This will fix the Crash.
