Question Turbo linux 6.0??????

I have never used any of the linux OS's before.Recently I was given a copy of Turbo Linux 6.0.I have become very familiar with windows and wanted to see what all the TODO about linux was.Well that's where the confusion began. At first I tried to dual boot using LILO .Total failure.Then I tried to install it by itself and all it did was search for an NIS during bootup and never stopped .So my question is , is there a secret?????
Now that I've reached such failure I don't want to quit in fact I'm more interested than before

First of all... if you're just starting on linux... I would suggest either RedHat or Mandrake, they're the easiest to set up. They have a graphical interface for you to use. I've never had experience with Turbo Linux, but I'm just speakin from experience having used RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake, Slackware, and Connectiva. Thats just my input, but I like Mandrake personally, even though it has that Godawful "auto-mounting" feature.

Have a look on and you will find that TurboLinux 6.0 was released on 16 Aug 01. So it is 18 months old. Probably worth trying a newer Mandrake or RedHat distro.

Turbo linux is a server distro, and an outdated server distro at that, not to mention that turbo linux are in financial trouble. Not a good choice for a first look
