Thanks for answering, paanika.
With a question like that, you're lucky that one of the mods hasn't done " a little finger wagging at you". As pointed out by JSpired, it's best to do a search for "which linux" or "which distro" or "best distro for newbie" etc etc, I'm sure you get the idea.
In fact, it may be better for you to download one of the "live" distros like knoppix, because it runs from the CD and doesn't put anything on your hard drive. That way, you get to see what stuff looks like.
is a good starting place, because it's got so much stuff on the one disc (vvv clever compression method), the only possibility of a problem I can think of would be if you use an internal modem, of the "winmodem" type, but if you know exactly what model it is, then you can look it up here
. Knoppix can config some
of them as well.
Maybe that points you in the right direction?
p.s. Oh and one of the biggest reasons for searching here, is because if you check this site
and you'll get some idea of how many distro's there are to choose from!
