If you have NTFS windows and it is one giant partition then use SuSe and resize the NTFS partition. It doens't destroy your data. Then make the new unallocated space a FAT32 or vfat (same thing) partition, copy all your music from windows to that partition and install w/e distro you want (you could use SuSe just for resizing NTFS if you want). If you want a cheap way to get SuSe (as it has no ISO images) then either do an FTP install or order it from a site like amazon.com for about 8 bucks like i did. good luck. SuSe has media players too i believe.

PS make sure it is SuSe 9.0 Pro

Nice thread with some good points but the title of the topic drags things down. This is a good forum from what I've seen but I'd ask a moderator to delete that unnecessary part of the topic's title. Just my 2 cents.

I've emailed Jeremy to ask him to edit the title - at the moment only he can do this.

i prefers ubuntu / Redhat family linuxs

suse is most userfriendly os, but it has very heavy to install, in text mode default text size is damn small
if u r using ubuntu series(edubuntu, or ubuntu) its fast booting ,new gnome ,new s/w s( if u have net connection ,u can install additional packages), in new ubuntu , very simple to install, only 4/5 steps
finally redhat family( rhel *,fedora core 6),it is most installed linux distribution in the world,so millions of users satisfaction is the real advantage of redhat families
