Drake Puppy 0.3

This is the first beta release of Drake Puppy, built from Mageia 1 binary packages. Mageia is a fork of Mandriva, previously known as Manddrake -- hence our derived name "Drake".

The Puppy Package Manager is able to install packages from the Mageia repository.

As this is the first beta, it will have bugs and is not yet a "public release". It is for our Puppy enthusiasts to play with and report back.
