    Personally id just go look at http://www.linuxiso.org and see wich one seems best to you, Linux isnt like wich ones better, it depends what you want to do wich makes one or another better.

    Smile THANKS

    I would like to thank everyone for their help in this matter. In case anyone is interested in this I decided to go with Red Hat 8.0.

    Again many thanks to you all.

    I was never a big SuSE fan, I always use the cheapest possible hardware and SuSE never seemed to be able to handle it, but redhat would. As for choosing redhat, a good distro but I would suggest 9 over 8 it seems to have a better ease of use factor.

    The choice has been made, redhat it is. But as a linux newbie myself, I would make one small suggestion. Buy a second harddrive, nothing big (You can pick up a 5 gig for 10 bucks at most service shops that have used for sale) this gives you the option to play with linux until you are ready for the jump without partitioning plus if you are on a dial up, it'll save you a lot of headache when you need drivers for your connection to the internet. I might be stating the obvious, but it's something I learned the hardway, lol.

    start w/ RH. Mandrake, SuSE but eventully if you are serious about learning linux you'll move on to Debian, Slack, *BSD

    personally I swear by Debian... almost equal to BSD w/ stability and security.. and it's still Linux.

    " Note that Slackware and FreeBSD can both be a pain in the rear
    end when it comes to installation and configuration."

    Hmmmm......

    FreeBSD isn't hard to configure and install if the user would print out
    the 'Handbook' read it carefully they'd be ok my OS of choice is OpenBSD
    it's the most straight forward I have ever used and it's easy to install
    and setup I love compiling my apps and source code on it
