    I am downloading mandrake as we speak(will be done in about 2 1/3 hours )
    I chose mandrake because I am a COMPLETE noob to linux and it seemed more user friendly than redhat.
    so my question is since I use windows xp right now what differences will there be what should I expect?
    will mandrake run well on a virtual pc?
    any advice,help,warnings,comments etc welcomed

    If U 've never used linux before, I would highly suggest Red Hat 9.0, it is very user-friendly (compared to other releases), the interface is very similar to windows, and it's pretty easy to set up. here r some guides U might be interested in:

    threre are mutch more, but these should more then cover the basics

    ps: as a sidenote, this new K-sig utility sucks, Sig2Dat was mutch better (the sigs are in this format 'cause the links didn't work )

    Mandrake is a very good choise for beginners. You need to set it up in its own partition on your hard drive. As to what to expect different than windows? I think the best way to find out is to install it and try it yourself. Goodluck, "The Avatar Man".

    during the installation, it lets you partition your harddrive using its software... don't worry cuz its SUPER easy! even a thicko like me was able to get through it!!

    I just finished downloading LINUX Red Hat 9.0 (all 3 disks/ISO)

    I am a newbie on this. What problems am I going to face. Already I heard that somebody can't get an internet connection working with it.

    Another source of help is www.linuxdocs.org with some more advanced stuff as well as some intro info,
    I still have to finish hwk so i can get enough free time to check it out!

    Good luck!!
