    go to http://www.suse.com and look for the download area. They tell you everything you need to know to get it downloaded and running.

    prodikal: I would stronly suggest you not download one of the images and just go out and buy one at BestBuy or something. It'll come with a manual, hopefully, that'll help you through many of the troubles you're gonna have since you're a beginner at Linux. Also, it'll save us the time of having to answer all of your simple questions that you'll be asking us when you're having trouble with "dir" not working or something, hehe. For real, though, just go buy one. They're not that expensive, and it'll help you out a ton. Make sure, though, before you install it you get all of your hardware info on your computer. I don't mean how many mhx the processor is or anything, I mean the detailed crap like what kind of mobo it is, what the refresh rate on your monitor is, etc. You're gonna need this stuff and before you go buy it you should make sure your hardware is compatible with the version of Linux you're going to be buying.

    I actually paid for my latest RedHat distro. It cost me $10 Australian. I think that's around $100 000 000 US. It sure beats downloading it on a 56K Modem....

    If you have a high speed connection you can goto www.linuxiso.org to get the iso images of many distros. For all the documents you'll need on using them, goto www.linuxdoc.org .
    Hope that helps.


    BTW: Thats pretty much the only two sites you will ever need to get yourself up and running in linux. And this site of course.
