another attempt at linux wish me luck!

In the past, everytime I tried installing linux was just because I had nothing else to do. I usually failed. The few times I did get it to work, there was a high learning curve and I ended up going back to windows. Now I REALLY want to get it to work so I can have webhosting and test out my website before I pay webhosting. I am still a newb.

I have a 400mhz AMD K2 which I will be using. I have decided to use Fedora because it seems to be the most user friendly. Wish me luck!

Dont give up like I did on Debian, i tried to install in 5 times with no hope, well, no GUI anyway lol. If you have had previous distro woes, I installed Mandrake 10.0 Community and was surprisingly simple! Got it fully up and running within about 10 mins!
