Hello, all!

I'm new to the Linux world. I must admit. I am a new student to the o/s. I am enthusiastic and excited to be a part of the Linux world.

I can't wait to mix it up with all of those that are willing to mentor me along my new venture.

Welcome to LQ & the "World Of Linux".
We look forward to helping you with your journey.
I'd like to make a few suggestions.
Try out some of the live-cd's that are available & downloaded for free.
You can either browse thru them either here, distrowatch or directly from the distributor.
If you decide you'd like to install 1 or more try getting used to installing them via virtualbox first(to get used to the insatllation process), if that's not how you want to do your first install read the documentation carefully as it's a little different than windows.
If you run into problems we are always willing to help.

Good luck!

Thanks to all for the warm welcome and for some insight on how to obtain further information.

I have installed Fedora/RHEL onto VMWare Player. So far so good. From what I gather thus far, there's definitely a lot to learn. I promise I won't allow it to get too intimidating. Is it wrong for me to feel like a baby penguin?

I will be in touch, I'm sure with questions.
