3. write documents like in M$ word (I need double spacing, page margins etc.)
I've been reading a lot about linux and am really ready to get started. thanx
I don't have a DVD burner but I think you can do this.
You should be able to connect to any standard ISP in Linux assuming you have a compatable modem.
Use Open Office for M$ word stuff.
