Ubuntu is pretty good too. You can order a cd online for free and they'll ship it to you for free. I guess fedora red hat though... more user friendly. It's just in my experience...

I prefer xandros, then you can move on to more advanced systems if you need to.

Try Ubuntu Linux. It's free and can fit on to a single 700MB CD, so it's easy to download and install. When it installs the boot loader, it should detect Windows, and offer you the option of dual-booting with it. It worked with my laptop perfectly.

i heard slackware is kinda hard to use, but hella powerful. i think it means make an account, or if u had windows before, put in the stuff for it. im just guessing because of the ms. i would suggest googleing it
