New to linux (mandrake)

Hello every1.
My name is Andreas and i am from Sweden. I'm new on this forum, and i am new to Linux to.
I am relly confused about linux, i havent installed it yet, i was thinking of start using mandrake, they told me that madnrake is good for a start ?!?!?!?!?.

So i would be greatfull for every tip that i get.
Right now im using XP, and im relly sick and tierd of it, it newer works the way i want to, i have used windows for almost 8 years now.

So can someone tell me a little about linux, whats the "biggest" difference between windows and linux (mandrake)

And btw, is tere any page where i can find some install instructions for mandrake 10.0 ?

Thanx alot for your time.
