Easy to Install distro?
I was looking forward to install Gentoo this weekend. When it was time to reboot, I was waiting for Gentoo to boot, from my hard drive this time! I was met with a mess of unintelligble symbols on the screen, and decided I need an easy to install distribution.
I would prefer not to edit that many config files. Also, the distro needs to be freely available online. A torrent would be preferred. IF the distro has a good package management system, that is even better.
In the past, I have tried Fedora Core 2 and 3, and I was not satisfied with the results. I found the system slow and unstable, and had a number of frustrating bugs. It was the only distro that has actually worked for me, but it was not near enough. I tried Slackware, but it was too confusing.
Can anyone help me? I don't want to have to go back to Windows XP again. Thanks for all replies.
