Well, I did some more reading and decided to go with Fedora Core 4. I was EXTREMELY SKEPTICAL, however fedora detected EVERYTHING and even my new HP printer was detected. Gnome is beautiful. Now if only I can learn how to use unix based applictions (i.e., install, organize, etc). It's a lot different to me than in MS XP, where you just install the .exe or .bat, and try and organize everything to the program files folder. I'm not sure where everything is hidden yet at this point. I downloaded a few free linux apps online, but I cant figure out how to install them. Oh well, time to play and learn.
