Mandriva 2007 Upgrade

Unfortunately there were technical problems with Konqueror, and others causing the image to be uploaded three times.

Thanks to Calis, the PC's OS had been upgraded from Mandriva 2006 to 2007. Upgrade was almost smooth (previously installed programs and documents were preserved, even document and URL histories, application settings and cache etc are intact) except for some minor problems.
* The kicker menu had a new scheme and the old shortcuts to some programs disappeared (OpenOffice, Quanta and others (they were not remouved though))
* Even installing the new 2.04 fails to modify some KDE menu styles that is why I have to use the messy one that shows them.
* Unofficial customizations were reverted (quite expected)(those requiring images used by Mandriva to be replaced)
* Others remaining to be revealed
