(^_^)I missed how Mandriva came into this conversation, but it caught my attention
(^_^)because I just installed Mandriva 2007 powerpack. It's very nice, definitely
(^_^)worth a look.

It came up because in the process of figuring out why I was having
problems with SuSe, I had installed Mandriva and while it did install
(along with the bootloader) it didn't have a shutdown function that was
not readily available for newbies like me! :-) Even at the login screen,
you could only log in, you couldn't reboot or shutdown, although the
permissions were set to allow it. <shrug>
