    Could some one give me a hand, I am a Windows user; I want to make the transion to Linux. There are Programs I Found that I can't live without.
    Could someone offer suggestions for Linux software that would replace?

    Acid and Soundforge - Used for Multitrac audio recording.

    Adobe Photoshop

    Microsoft word

    And I'm worried if I reformat My Windows disk, when I install Linux I may not be able to get my cable modem online. Are there suggestions for this?

    And, Lastly, What version of Linux would you suggests that might be easiest to configure.
    Where would I find it online?

    gimp might work for your photoshop needs

    I've really never done any sound editing, so I don't know about Acid and Soundforge, but maybe check out audacity?

    If you want to keep windows, just resize your windows partition and put linux on the unallocated part of your hd, the installer should take care of most of it...depending on the distro you choose.

    I hope this helps you
