Hi, I just stumbled onto this board while surfing, I wish I would have found it a long time ago!  I have been wanting to try Linux for a long time but do not know any other people who use it.  I would like to know which version, red Hat, Suisie, or Mandrake is the best for a begginer.  I have put together a computer from old parts and want to make it a Linux machine to learn on.

Hi, Well it is good to hear that you want to give linux a try. I can give my personal opinion about the distros.

Redhat is a good start, it is a good all around disto. It can be used as a server, desktop or laptop.

Suse is probably stronger on the desktop side, has a utility called yast that allows you to setup your system easier I find than redhat. Only problem with suse is it is a pain to download and install.

Mandrake is supposedly one of the best distros for desktop. I have never really used it myself, but I hear it is quit good.

One that might be worth trying is called Knoppix. You just boot of the cd and away you go.

I would check ou this site, it will tell you all you need to know about the different linux distros out there. That is the beauty of Linux, you have a selection, or a choice of what you want to use.

Best of luck, hope you enjoy Linux.

Thanks Tincan, I checked out the link, I had no idea there were so many versions of Linux, I thought there were only the three.
