I have replied to your mdv question but to be rude

it looks like you would be better off the short term....just downloading a good live cd to see how things are in the linux world

suggest either
mepis 6.5

you can read reviews at

2) it is possible you do not know how to partition but there is not enough info for me to know that

and other sites may help?
