Hey zLinuxz, Do you really boot all them distros, or do you just have the discs available? And you are a DIE HARD RH fan aren't you? I think I have a pretty large collection of distros, but only 2 on my system. Do they all have the default kernels, or did you tweak/upgrade them? Cool, see ya.

I have all the distros versions on there...cuz I used them all. Well, at the beginning I used slackware...1996 hehe, then I went on to debian, then my friend, who is the responsible one for me getting into linux, brandished a brand new box of Redhat 5.0 one day...and since then I've been a RH supporter,
Then, I met a friend like 3 years ago who booted Mandy on his laptop...it looked kindda cool but that was only cuz he had a nice background, hehehe. So, I've tried Mandy too, but I guess I'm just used to RH.
And ofcourse, my RH is definately tweaked...none of those 2.4.x-XX kernels, heheh. And I need t to tweak it anyway cuz I have some hardware that RH has a bit of trouble correctly setting up.
Hmm, I think I have a screen shot of my desktop posted somewhere...let me look. (since I'm not on my pc now)

it's like having a library at home...you got lots of books...of course you don't read all of them every day...some only or perhaps only one every day, so it's cool to have lots of distros in your linux library,

heh...well there's a good book about RedHat called... "Redhat 7.X Secrets"
But, you should try to find a book which focuses on the Linux OS, more than just the distribution which you are using,
