Redhat 9.2 best for noob like me!


Hi all,

Being new to the board, i thought I would introduce myself and
I thought I would share with you my experience thus far with Redhat 9.2

It ROCKS! First of all, i'm a windows freak. I hated that fact because it is so limited. So i delved into the world of Linux....

I was thinking of Mandrake or Redhat. I went with Redhat at a toss of a coin.

And wow. Instsallation was a snap.
It already has apache. Which took 2 seconds to configure.
It saw my Windows workgroup and shared MS files with NO configuration needed.

So all you folks out there scared of going the Linux way, DO IT! ITS FUN! (omg i'm a nerd)
