linux noob requires easy install amd64 linux...
....can anyone help? This will be my first ever linux install and I want it to be as easy as possible....mandrake 10 beta 2 for amd64 any good? I know its in beta but someone I asked seemed to think this was the best solution. I want something free as I don't know if I am going to keep a linux OS - I want to evaluate it first. If I decide to keep it then I am more than happy to pay for it. I paid M$ for god's sake LOL.
Oh, in case it makes differences my hardware comprises:
Shuttle SN85G4 Case (with integrated Nforce 3 150 Ethernet - mobo is shuttle FN85, also integrated Memory Card Slots on case front - would like to use these!)
Athlon 64 3200+
1gb TWINMOS PC3200 RAM
Sapphire Radeon 9800PRO 128mb
Audigy 2 ZS
Maxtor 250gb ATA 133 HDD (4 partitions and NTFS formatting)
NEC 2500a 8x DVD-RW / 32x CD-RW
Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop
thanks a lot.
