The mandrake sys has /proc/mtrr, but you suggust there will probably no mtrr.h header in Mandrake. I don't see the relation you're suggesting (eg if you have /proc/mtrr, you prolly don't have mtrr.h and vice versa) because I have both. And they have to be present (both of them) because it won't work otherwise. I think there has been some misunderstanding on your side.. ;)

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
