Fedora Core 3 is user friendly, so is Suse.
Those two are the most common to start with.
It has decent hardware support and user friendlyness, fedora core 3 uses Gnome as a desktop enviroment where as Suse uses KDE for that.
It's a bit of a personal choice really, of course there are other distro's but those 2 are good to start with.

I use Fedora Core 3 and i can say i'm pretty pleased with it.
Quick install, gui nice, etc etc.

But you can't go wrong with other distro's, some are just a bit harder to start with.

I like RedHat. it is a pretty user friendly distro, but it is powerful. you can dl fedora for free off of redhat's site (http://www.redhat. . .) or you could get The RedHat Linux 9 Bible which comes with the OS. If you opt for the bible, be warned that it is older and RedHat no longer provides support for it. but i still use it and it is cool. Mandrake is alos good and so is SuSe. just look around and try to find a distro that suits your needs Wink

as for a choice of desktop, the 2 best ones are KDE and Gnome. KDE was designed to rival the Mac and Windows for user friendlyness, so it is good for newbies. However i prefer Gnome. Gnome is also very easy to use (i started on it). i would say go for Gnome! (but i'm biased towards Gnome, so go for whichever one suits your needs Wink )

also, regardless of whcih distro you choose, dont always stick to the GUI. expirencing Linux from bash (or your shell of choice) is a much more rewarding expirence!

okay well there are several things you can do in this situation. if you install Linux as your pirmary OS, you dont need another OS to launch from. as to the HD problem, try going into your BIOS, and setting your primary IDE device as your CD drive. boot off of a floppy and have it run the OS from the CD. not sure if this will work, but hey it is worth a shot (i kow for a fact you could boot into runlevel 3 like this....)

as too the kernal panic, what exactly does the error message say?

If you change your boot to the cd it will run streight from the cd but i dont think it will fix your problem. that is unless you reinstall it from the cd.

I have an iBook G4 running Tiger and I wanna see why everyone says linux is so good. I have virtual PC on my laptop running windows 98. Would I be able to install linux onto the emulation that I have for windows 98 or am I just being a dumbass? I have never found a mac installable version of linux. There isn't one is there? Does anyone else out there use mac?

linux can be installed on a mac, theres a distro called yellow dog which is just for macs: http://www.yellow. . . . i think you can install linux using virtual linux, i've never done it but it does create a fake harddrive on the real one for the OS being emulated. I'm sure that SuSE and mandrake support ppc aswell. you just have to find the iso for it.

If anyone is still hacking with windows they seriously need to make a change. it was once said that "hacking in windows is like dancing in a body cast". A good distro is suse 9.2 as it has now been updated with many more features including a dvd player.
