You make an install USB drive, boot from it, and select install. Then, follow the instructions on the screen.

Download the install iso file from the web. then put a usb drive in the machine. Do
Code:
dd if=install.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=2048
where /dev/sdb is the USB drive. Then boot from the USB drive.

Have a look at VirtualBox.org (&osboxes.org) IF you just want to try Linux
(Quick&easy, like just an 'app' on your current M$Win PC)

Let us know what you decide to do, and how it goes. Welcome to LQ
(But web-searching & Wikipedia are often most effcient for basic learning)
Oh, also look at DistroWatch.com

Hi.

New computer, older?

For the basics if you have 4* GBs of Ram run Virtualbox with the Linux-distros.iso downloaded to your hard drive...
unless you just want to wipe micocoughed-losedogh$ out?

Once you know how it installs on your computer have some real fun!

I'll echo jamison 20000e. Are you using a newer, or an older computer?

Age is relevant.....and specs would be helpful. Make, model, CPU, amount of RAM, HDD, graphics card/chip.....that kind of thing. It'll help us to recommend the best Linux distribution for your hardware.....after which, we can then talk about the best way to install.

Incidentally, there's no such thing as just installing 'Linux' to your machine. There's over 450 different versions floating around out there.....


Mike.

furthermore, if you just wanted to check it, boot a live CD - without installing it.

If you could please give us more details we might be able to help you a lot.

Please tell us for what kind of machine you need it for and for what purpose you need Linux. Is it everyday use, dual-booting?
PC/laptop? UEFI? Hard drive? RAM, processor, graphics?

Have a look at Distrowatch:

https://distrowatch.com/

You'll find all the major versions of Linux there. And on each distro's website, you'll find installation instructions.

I suggest that you look at https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...#faq_lqwelcome so you can compose a post that will help us to help you.

You can choose a ISO to download from LQ's
Download Linux

You should consider a LiveCD/DVD/USB to test drive a Gnu/Linux on your hardware. Please remember that your hardware may dictate the Gnu/Linux that you will be able to use/run. If legacy hardware then you can consider looking at these within the sticky:
Newbie alert: 50 Open Source Replacements for Windows XP

These links will help you to learn while using a Gnu/Linux.

Quote:
Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
