Well.. wow. Tons of replies! I didn't expect so much in so little time, this forum is awesome!
I've pretty much had all the basic questions I wanted answered, so now all I have to do is get these CDs made and start messing around in Linux to see what I can get set up and working.
As for the 4 CD thing... the ISO files are called the following..
I dunno what the MandrakeMove thing is.. but I downloaded it anyways, so I dont have to do it later if it comes up that I need it for something. Well, the ISO's are done DLing, just finished, so I'm about to start burning them to CD and get this party started
I really appreciate all the help. I'll definately be hanging around these forums as I learn and use Linux.
