Not currently, although I plan to fix that in the future.

It currently seems to work on Redhat 9, it might also work on Debian. 
Redhat 8.0 support is almost there.

My issue is I don't run Mandrake here, but I'd be happy to add Mandrake
specific stuff to the installer if someone is willing to test it.
