I would try some of the "Live" versions. They run from cd. My favorites are fedora, mepis, pclinux & knoppix.

Just for encouragement....

I'm "not new, but still know almost nothing"

If anyone in this forum proclaims to know everything, they are either mistaken and arrogant, or just stupid.

Welcome! May you learn much!
