Any particular reason why you are trying these distros? They are both dead, and have been for the last four years! There will be no new software, no bug fixes, no support for recent hardware. If you are just looking to install Linux, try Mint.

The Mint web site has a user guide that you can download that will explain exactly how to install and use it:

In many countries (South Africa, for example) you find Linux in schools for under-10s, so a high-school student should have no trouble.

Jugdging by the previous attempt, probably Yggdrasil or SLS.

J/K, go with something like Mint KDE.
