Ok, i want to introduce my family to linux. So i picked SuSE 9.0 'cause they did not like my RedHat 9
, and cause of the eye candy, but im obviously not a linux guru, but im not a linux newbie, I just never done this before. so i need help. How do I get linux off the internet, it says get the ISO images off the mirrors(I don't have a cd burner, so im booting froma floppy[Ithinks that right]) so what do i get? Im just searching the network and im coming up empty.
So could soemone give me a step by step walkthrough on how to do this? and my other question is, does SuSE linux take forever to start-up with system checks, or is that just RedHat?(Its the only thing im afraid of, since they imediatly hated my RedHat 9.0, because it took SO DAMN LONG to start up, doesnt realy bother me, but it bothered them.) They want something else other then windows to use for multi-media, because they don't want to have one of those days where winodoze becomes sluggish, or they have to update windoze, restart it because it crashed, and one of the big reasons is that they hate it when they cant play a video clip because there media player is OOD, and/or they dont have the Multi-Media software to play it. Thanx.
