I just checked. I still have the boot disk, CD's & manual.

The Lycoris corporation was founded in 2000 by Joseph Cheek with a vision of making Linux simple enough for everyone and pioneered the Linux based home-user desktop.
Lycoris ceased to be an independent distribution after it was acquired by Mandriva in June 2005
This system worked real well for me, I was extremely dissapointed when it came to its end. And I still have the installation disk.

Next OpenSuse 10.2, this experience was so horrific I should have ended my research into linux as an alternative to ms. After a mind numbing 2hr install the zen updater deleted the wm. Then I found Mint Bianca and there was hope for linux.
