    If you get Redhat, you only need 3 of the 5. Discs 4,5 contain extra programs that are optional to install, but can make life easier.

    If your a beginner and just want to see what linux is like, I'd go with RedHat.

    At a number of download sites you can download the latest flavor of linux, one of them is Knoppix.
    What Knoppix is, is a version of Debian linux that runs COMPLETELY off of a CD ROM. All you have to do is burn the image to a CD, and boot the CD!

    The image includes a number of browsers, (Konqueror, Mozilla), Gaim (AOL instant messanger client), Open Office Word processor, and even includes AIRSNORT! When you are done using it, just logout, pop out the CD, and you are back to your normal operating system!

    All in all a great way to get your feet wet in linux without having to repartition your HD (Great for those with laptops from work&#33


    Enjoy!
