I'm reasonably competent with M$ windows and TCP/IP Networking, but have only scratched the surface with Linux.
I have tried & installed various versions with some success with older distros like Mandrake 8.2 however I would like to look into the serious use of a Linux Box, mostly for some desktop application stuff (An earlier PII System) and I wonder if Red Hat is considered more stable and relatively user friendly?
I would like some proposals on which older version of RH Might be more suitable on an older (64+Mb RAM, 3-8 GB HD) system? I would not intend to install every application available on the distro to keep demands on the processor low, but would like to use USB ports without to many problems. Your thoughts would be appreciated gents - and ladies!
