What Distro to use while Studying for Linux+


Per the Comptia objective on Linux plus "The scope of the exam is limited to software are settings common to Linux software from Red Hat, Suse, Mandrake, and Turbo Linux."

I have Fedora 7 will that work since it's based off of Red Hat. I won't to use the right distro for my hands on during my self study so I'm prepared.

Shoot , I even called Comptia and the lady just told me to go by the objectives.
Mandrake and Turbo Linux are free but the first two aren't.

What do you guys advise?

There is always openSuse, or CentOS which is pretty much free RedHat.

That course sounds pretty out of date, but most of them are.

Both RHEL and Suse have freely available 100% binary compatible clones;

http://www.opensuse.org/

Use the distro(s) of your choice. if I were making the choice between F7 and CentOS, I would use CentOS as it is a bit closer to what RHEL is than Fedora 7.

Thanks for the info I'll run both of those distro's during my studies.
Got to love vmware server, it makes studies so much easier.

The Linux+ exam objectives are dated 2/07/05 but that's the latest test.

Till next time.
