Mandrake 9.2 is up and running.
I had a little trouble grabbing the Master Boot Record back from RH, but I suspect that might have been operator error. Regardless it was simple enough to fix. So far it looks to be working brilliantly.
It was also able to properly recognize my flatscreen LCD monitor and correct an annoying flicker problem that it had. I'm a happy camper.
Now of course, it's time to pound on it and see what/if anything breaks.
Update:LogJam is working, Kpilot is working (didn't under RH9)
