Hi I am a linux newbie, I know absolutely nothing about linux. I have used windows for many years and I would love to expand my knowledge of linux. It seems pretty cool to me, as I am typing I have mandrak 10.0 CD1&2 downloaded and I am waiting for CD3. I am going to hopefully dual boot windows xp and mandrake. I might have some hardware issues and whatnot so I thought I might like to come in here and say hi so you guys have a basic idea of where I stand. Expect to see me later on today.

NoS Sr50, welcome to LQ. You have taken the right step with deciding to go with Mandrake. It is really user friendly... can be a bit nasty at times ... that is why LQ is here
