There are many linux distributions. The main ones are: Mandrake, Slackware, Gentoo, Debian, Redhat. There are literally many linux operating systems based on these 5 main operatings
For eg) Debian - Mepis and Ubuntu based on Debian
Redhat - Fedora, Mandrake, Redhat server enterprise BTW I do know about Fedora Core........
