Brand NEWbie - Easy Questions to start
Just for starters, I am brand new to Linux, I have an older brother who is pretty efficient in Linux, though i would like some experts opinions in my case. I am looking to put Linux on my desktop computer, run minor apps.....BUT definitely run a websever, ftp server, file server, mail server...and what not....thus i need security yet reliability. My bro can help me as far as the progs, due to he has done them already....what i need:
1 What distro should I go with Mandrake or Fedora?
Dual PIII - 866
1 Gig RAM
SoundBlaster Live Xgamer
Hercules Prophet III
Plextor CD burner
In other words, basic old school stuff......
2 Will i be able to use my system....or should i build a linux box?
Thanks So much and i cant wait to get in on the action
