    Since some of you have been asking about installing and seemed worried about it, I've decided to dig up the tutorials I wrote for doing that very thing.

    I haven't written one in some time now, and the installers HAVE changed since then. However, the installation is still very much the same for most of these distros.

    I know OpenSUSE 11 is basically a live CD, and to start that install you'd just double click on the Icon saying Install, and it starts it up. For the most part you won't have any issues doing it.

    Windows is actually harder to install than Linux, and Linux actually has a better GUI for the installers unless it's Debian or Slackware in which case it's text based like most of the Windows install is.

    Here you go:

    Once you have SUSE installed, this is how you could set up an FTP server on it which would first, give you a way of doing back ups to a central location, and second, teach you how it works:

    I took some major crap for writing that Vi one because a certain member here said it was crap and that I didn't go into detail. Apparently when you point out that most people who can't use VI probably don't because of how long the manuals are for it and that this was written for those people, it wasn't good enough heh.
