And do do do read other threads in LQ.
I know you're new, but this question has been answered millions of times in practically every linux site available. INstead - how about you try to state where you don't understand about "this distribution thing"?

This was GOOD English compared to some of what we get here....What is really aggravating is to see an obvious ESL person using the cutesy abbreviations (because maybe they think that makes them look more mainstream??)
