Default Linux

Well i'm going switch to linux when I get my new HD, 320 GIG. Not only that my new business computer which will only be used as a business machine to keep records etc will have linux which saves me about 400 bucks in software . So i'm wondering I have 19 GIGs of HD space, could I create a linux portion right now to get a feel off it?

Definetly, 19GB is more than enough for Linux. Which distro you going for?

I recommend Gentoo, Suse, And Fedora (Fedora and Suse are easier to set up, Fedora is the easiest of all the distributions ive seen)

Gentoo takes some know how, but you get better results that way
