FTP download mirrors for all MCNLive editions:
Release notes, md5sum and a list of installed packages available in the resp. directories.
MCNLive is made off the free Mandriva Linux distribution without changing the source. You can download the sources from
or from one of the mirrors.
Info about downloading, iso images and md5sum
- An .iso file is an image of a CD. You burn this file to a CD as it is. Without extraction. Don't burn
it as a data CD. But as an image! Most burning software have a special menu for this operation. Burn at a low speed.
- The preferred method of downloading big files is using a ftp client, not a web browser. You can continue a stalled download.
- After downloading the iso image please verify the integrity of the file, by using a program that controls the md5sum.
MS Windows users go here to get the program.
