    What do you mean by learning "hacking"? What is your purpose?

    drnet, sorry Bud. You're going to have to be a bit more clear about what it is that you want to do. Being as though this is an "Anti"- hacking site, hacking (and I use the term lightly) is frowned upon. Try responding to clarify what it is you're looking to do so that we know if you will be helped here. This is definitely not a good first post Doc - at least, with the way it's worded and all.

    drnet, t2k2 is right, you need to be MUCH more specific as to what exactly you want to do....but Red Hat, Mandrake are 2 very flexible all purpose operating systems with great documentation that is geared toward begining linux users.....

    t2k2 is right. Perhaps you should rephrase your question and state your intentions for the first half of the question. If not, than I suggest you delete the post.

    Take care

    Well for my part, i don't think that any operating system is best for learning hacking.
    Hacking is about computer knowledge. All *Nix give much more control and you'll more from them but you have to already posses some knowledge to jump into the *Nix world.

    Well that's my 0.02!

    RH Linux... is a very good option to start with... but be sure that "hacking" is illegal... I am also a newbie to AO, but I have learnt from the previous posts here, that AO citizens are against mallicious actions....
    Hi! I am new to these forums.......

    I believe that hacking is really a nothing more than wanting to learn to some kewl stuff, and generally has something to do with computers, but doesn't have to be. I believe that hacking can involve ANYTHING.

    I know what its like starting out....I started out on the wrong foot, also (yes I used to be a script kiddy, I admit it), but I soon learned that there is much more to hacking than running a few scripts to do something for you. Its about doing it yourself and learning from the experience.
    For all of you that are anxious to learn, I highly recommend joining CyberArmy. This is a great environment for newbs and there many there who are willing to mentor you. If you're interested in Perl, go here after you sign up with CyberArmy....

    Maybe some of you dont know this....but not everyone in the World knows English as a first language. Give the guy some slack. And how are you supposed to be an "anti-hacker" if you dont know what they know?

    Rant done.
