Just don't panic!
Installing FC2 was just easy, had no problems at all! I personally think, that FC2 is a very good start for newbies... as I am one too
Installation is not more difficult than Windows installation, perhaps even easier.... My tip: If you got the smallest problem or question, just google for your problem or post a thread in here.... Everyone has once started using Linux, and there are no stupid questions....
Found some great help here!!
Learning by doing, and remember: the best Linux user is someone who knows how to RTFM (Read the f******* manual)
All the information you want can be found on the Inet!
Good Luck with your installation, and keep on asking questions!
