Well, I got a 360 gb external hard drive, which I would use assuming I could keep my data on it. But if that not possible, I also have an 2.5 in hard drive ill soon be making an external hard drive. So I guess I could have the bulky ubuntu. Like I said too, if there are any interesting linux distros out there that you think are worth trying, feel free to add them. With all this said, I'm kinda interested on how I'm going to get all this from you?

Talking

So that's a list of distros you suggest? Why not, feel free to add them if you want the more I learn the better... So I'm still confused on how your going to give this to me. Also, will I be able to use this hard drive for other things? like keeping my excel sheets, games, ect?

Well... I'm 20 so White Zombie is a little before my time lol. I do like some of Rob Zombies songs, but I suppose I'm more into the newer stuff.

Yea, its for my dads business. He's got like 20 employees with computers and their not managed well. So we've got admin accounts with unknown passwords and all sorts of screwy stuff on these computers. I keep trying to get him to switch to Linux instead of Microsoft but not to successful. Also, I plan on starting my own basic tech business, thats another reason I want all this stuff. Also I'm going to go to college for computer engineering so the more I learn the merrier lol. I'm in hawaii so its 1pm here. Thanks for all your help!

LOL
the asking the time thing was a inside joke
you know
"oh, it's 420 dude"

Oh yeah, so is your dad hiring?
I need a job bad

So, how to get you all this stuff??

I could either just provide the menu's, etc
and folder placement

or build it and upload it

I got this idea for selling dvd's(linux)
on ebay
nobody else has multidistro stuff on the market
they would of course easily go on usb too
interested in a partnership?

Hmm well I wouldn't say that I'm a freaking genius at windows (and pretty close to dumb when it comes to Linux) but I suppose I could help out some how. I guess it would probably be easiest for you to give me the menus right? Lol and as far as hiring goes id say hes leaning towards the other direction right now.

Oh and about the selling of the multi-distro dvd/usb... I'm no legal expert but since Linux is freeware doesn't that prevent you from selling it? I don't really know if there is a way to work around it by claiming that you are selling the actual cd/dvd/usb and your services or not but I would suggest looking into this if I were you.
