Which skype is best for PCLinux


I am new to Linux. I have just installed PCLinux and it is working fine.I tried to download and install skype for linux. When i visited the website of skype they asked me the distribution details i.e wether I am using Ubantu 8.10_32bit or Ubantu 8.10+64bit, or debian lenny, or fedora10+.
Can somebody please help which one to download for PCLinux.
Thanks in advance

Pick the static one. It's bigger, but you won't have any dependency problem.

I have never used PCLinux myself, but have you checked it's package manager to see if there is a version available in the repository?

Open Synaptic, click on the Search tab at the top, type in "skype" and it should show in the repositories, download and install through Synaptic.
