    Check out the tutorials section here at AO, it should answer most of your immediate questions. This site is very good reference for your endeavor.

    I also recommend (as already previously discussed) checking out sites such as:
    HackYourself
    Port Scanning

    These won't ensure that you're fully secure, but it's a start...

    Also, I would recommend Mandrake linux, simply because it has a built in disk partitioner, that way you need not do any work....it fixes your partitions for you

    Also, if you said you want to get comfortable with windows first---DON'T!!!!!---See the problem with so many people is that they go to windows..get comfortable and fear learning once again. They would rather be comfortable with windows, instead of "getting" comfortable with linux.
    If you have any linux questions, of course there is google....but feel free to ask. Those who love it, will love to answer them

    take care, and good luck on your journeys....

    Is there any way i can test out linux without partitioning or changing my current OS?

    Also , i wanted to find out about the design aspect of computers, and since i read that linux doesnt support images i thought it be best to stick to windows

    I'm unsure of what you mean by images...if you disk images, yes it supports them. If you mean computer 'pictures', such as jpgs, etc... than yes it's fine

    if you have 1.5 GB free, than I would throw on Mandrake...you'll notice it's very easy to install, and easy to use. You'll have all of the luxuries of windows, but yet get to experiment with linux.

    second: you wouldn't have to change the OS, it would be installed on a separate partition that Mandrake makes from your free space, but partitioning is a must.

    However, go to LINUXISO and look for linux distros that run under windows. I don't recommend them, but you wouldn't have to change anything on your OS. ( I know one is call phat linux)
