Default Re: Linux Newbie.

I would advise u to get Fedora Core 4. It's pretty stable and cutting edge so u can use all the latest software. Then set up an account at www.fedoraforum.org and post all ur qns there. The community there is good.

Thumbs up

I am no big linux expert....yet....

But if you want to try out some easy linux distros try the following...

www.opensuse.org - opensuse (free, nice and easy)

www.ubuntulinux.org - ubuntulinux (free, small and easy)

www.kubuntu.org - kubuntu (same as ubuntu but uses KDE)

www.linspire.com - linspire (bout 50 usd, dead easy, so to speak!)

www.mandriva.com - Mandriva discovery (bout 30 usd, very simple)


Try a few of these, have time for them, trust me you will get there in the end, don't give up.

Dual booting dosn't seem easy but a lot of these versions of linux will do it for you as well as hard drive partitioning. Enjoy

I would started out with a xandros os and liked how it was very much like windows although it did not really give too many features. i currently use auditor which is offered at remote-exploit.com, this is less user friendly, but with some onlline tutorial from irongeek.com in no time it will start to seem easier.
