Getting started - what & where to download? (Mandrake 8.0 works!)

I've installed the RPMS for RTEMS and the GNU tools successfully in
Mandrake 8.0 (under Gnome, using KPackage)...  I've also successfully
compiled a short source file to test it...

Just thought I'd mention it :-)

Mandrake 7.1 works well.
Mandrake 8.0 with sources also works.

Redhat 8.0 rpm fails to install Borland Kylix in surperuser mode.

A bug in rpm IMO after read news borland.
