yea, ive been using mandrake for almost 2 months now, its really easy to install and deffinately user firendly. but its a bit crashey and ive heard that most other linux distributions are more solid.
When i first got into linux i tried to use Debain for the ease of 'apt-get install' but the install was tough, even with over the phone help of one of my debain expert friends. my kernel was messed up and i went crazy so i went to MDK9.2. but mandrake is prolly the best place to start. otherwise you might go crazy and kill yourself if your new to linux like me...
I just bought RedHat off ebay, and the moron didnt send any instructions..I have 9 disks here, i dont have a clue where to start..and do i have to partition my drive before i start the installation, or will the installation prompt for partioning?? some1 please help me out..
when i made the redhat9 cds i only made 3, im sorry you have nine. i searched on redhat.com for
-from what i found i think you could use the SRPMS (source of the rpms) rather than the (generically compiled) binaries. there probably wont be any difference. if you can find the cd that has documentation for the US, and search for "SRPMS" you will probably find out which cd set you prefer to use. unfortunatly you will have to read quite a bit to learn what you are looking for.
-redhat8 will ask you if you want to manually configure the partitions, im pretty sure redhat9 asks too but with less options.
im sure that you will find help on this or other forums for you future troubles IF you post exactly what happend and you do it in an attitude-free manner
