Ahhh You'll get the hang of it. I personally use Slackware and SuSE. They're both a little bit more advanced however.

Stay with Redhat over Mandrake, you'll find you will probably like redhat better.

Take a look at http://www.linux.org/. This site has some very informative and useful tutorials and solutions to common problems. Also check to see if your kernel is compiled to recognize your NIC. Running Linux canbe very advanced, so if you're up to it, read a book about it.

I had linux on my old computer a while back but never really looked into it. I know a bit but not too much. Thanx for the link.

Trustix is soo much better, but a very advanced distrobution which has to have each service configured itself, unlike most other distrobutions. Its very secure and stable. One of these days I'll take windows off this and put it back on once I get my bloody hard drive back *grumbles @ WD*

Linux kernal is slow, I mean I installed Mandrake 9 on my XP 1700+ with 512Mb DDR system and I got almost the same performance out of it like I did with mdk 8.2 on my k6-3 400 with 458mb of ram.

Mandrake actually stalls for a few seconds and crashes so easily its scary. I'm living like its Win98se days. Thank gawd 98se didn't last to long on my system or I'd be going crazy!
