Hey if you have any friend or relations that know anything about Linux get them around, it will help a lot. I am lucky to have a good friend who installed a copy of Linux Mandrake, he had a CD so I didnt even have to download.
Getting it with some manuals is also recommended.
Hope that helped but well everyone else gave better info sorry!

it is unnecessary to read up on it. It has a future named "diskdrake", which will automatically set up your partitions.
So that's a start, you can use the free space on your HD and install it there.....just start playing with it, that's the only way to learn.
The beauty of Mandrake, and I guess I can say for RedHat too...is that they install rather quickly.
So, since you're just starting out, if you should run into mishap (i.e screw up your X setup...hey, we've all done it at some point), you can just do a fresh install. With a 900MHz it takes 7 minutes to install...this will vary with processor speed.
