Hi completely_new

Probabaly the best site on the internet to check out all the different Linux distributions is

www.distrowatch.com

Its full of excellent info on both the begginers distros like Mandrake, Red hat, SUSE ,Lycoris and also lots of info on the more involved distros like Debian ,Slackware ,Gentoo etc

Good Luck

Yo, completely_new

MasterC and Fancypiper both got some good links on their "sig's"

in fact various of the moderators have got some good sig links - give em a try - then it's only time and bandwidth.

I know that there are also some "distribution specific" sites/forums e.g. on top of http://www2.mandrakelinux.com/en, which is the official site, there is an independant forum at http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php and so on.

Personally, I prefer printed info, but as yet, I have been frustrated by the tendency of publishers to keep the books written in "geek speak" - like O'Really's Running Linux - it's got loads of info, but I dont appreciate the overly technical rhetoric (hence the book spends a lot of time in the air - after I've thrown it across the room!)


regards

John
