Well the OS is running fine but i cant seem to figure out how to install any programs on it.
I don't know perhaps I should try something a little more newbie friendly, any suggestions?

well, if you want something debian-based, try ubuntu, or mepis:

or if you want something based on red hat, try mandrake, or suse:

I think his disrto of choice is BestLinux 2k, although I've never heard of it. You're going to need to find out how it installs packages, whether it uses RPM's, DEB's, TGZ's, or tarballs (*.tar.gz / *.tar.bz2).
Regardless of the distro, if you have development packages installed, you should be able to compile tarballs. Type this at a command prompt
Code:
gcc
If it presents this message
Code:
gcc: no input files
you have development programs installed and shoud be able to compile tarballs, in which case, use this tutorial.
