Why do you need 3CD's to install something? Suse comes on 1-2 just like Slackware and Ubuntu and all that jaz

whoppix http://www.whoppi. . . is a pretty good distro. it is a live CD that is meant for pen testers (all sorts of goodies Wink ). it is based off of knoppix.

some people don't like RedHat cause they feel that it is too much like Mircosoft. Also, RH is not one of the most secure distros. but i dont have a problem with it....

That's just because red hat is more user friendly, for as much as i know about linux, fedora core 3 is a good distro to start with so in that case red hat is a good thing.

If you get better in linux, just switch to another distro. Gentoo for instance has some very good advantages but it's not really newbie friendly.
So red hat does what it has to quite nice.
Of course everyone is entitled to his own opinion so this is all just my own opinion.
Don't want to get a distro war starting lol Grin

well about Linux, are you gonna install it as your OS or do you want to make a dual boot? the kernal panic is because the kernal cant boot for some reason. If you want to use Linux as your OS, just install it like you would anyother OS

knoppix rocks, are you installing it or just using it to see what linux is? I was just using it today to demonstrate how to get windows passwords to my uncle.

Man you should really check out the demo's on whoppix.

IT's a great pentest distro, alot of db's etc like n3w7yp3 said.
I might download it once, but currently like everyone i use knoppix Grin

yea liveCD's are cool. but they are nowhere near as good as when you have an actual Linux install on your HD. and not a dual boot either Wink

just take the plunge and switch to Linux cold turkey Wink

Well right now my windows 98 box is on the frits. For some reason it wont read the graphics card which is really weird because it read it before i formated it (Long story.) Anyways my Live Whoppix works fine with it. But i was wondering how to partition my Hard Drive so i could dual boot it with my whoppix. ( Only dual because its my dads computer and he wont approve) Anyone with some help?

well dual boot with whoppix is going to actually be more difficult that using a normal linux distro. but it can be done.

the first thing to do is install Windows, but do *not* take up the whole HD (re-partitioning can be a pain in the ass). next copy the whoppix boot dir onto your HD (sorry i am not sure what this is called :-/ ). you will still have to boot from the CD but it should eject itself once booting is finished. You may also need to get a bootloader in order to do a dual boot using this method (the best boot loader is, in my opinion, GRUB ). Also, note that i never said that tese instructions are exactly correct, or that the system will be fst and/or stable. you're pretty much on your own if you pick this route Wink

like i said it is more trouble than it is worth. just get RedHat or a normal Linux distro and set up a dual boot using that. It will come with a boot loader and will be a much eaiser install (and will be more stable) Wink
