    1. Download Mandrake
    2. Mandrake
    3. Yes very, the easyest
    4. Partition space so if you screw up
    5. It takes a little to get use to, its like windows in most ways tho.
    6. Mozilla Internet browser, is a good start.

    Mandrake is free, all linux distro's are free. Download it here http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/ftp.php3 . That way you can get it fast and and complete.

    Slack ware is just another version of linux, i haven't used it.

    Im sure a lot more people would but this has been asked an abundance of times.

    Try searching the forum for topics pertaining to linux and Im sure you will get tons of helpful info to start you on your quest to using "the" best o.s. there is.

    Id like to add that Xandros linux is pretty good for a noob who is really use to windows atmosphere.

    http://www.xandros.com/

    Get the iso off bittorent though because it cost from their site.
    More assholes that think linux should not be free.
