Just don't panic!

Installing FC2 was just easy, had no problems at all! I personally think, that FC2 is a very good start for newbies... as I am one too

Installation is not more difficult than Windows installation, perhaps even easier.... My tip: If you got the smallest problem or question, just google for your problem or post a thread in here.... Everyone has once started using Linux, and there are no stupid questions....

Found some great help here!!

Learning by doing, and remember: the best Linux user is someone who knows how to RTFM (Read the f******* manual)

All the information you want can be found on the Inet!

Good Luck with your installation, and keep on asking questions!

I find that Mandrake 10 is the easiest to start with, I started with Red Hat 8 (Basically Fedora is Red Hat 10) and it was ok but i find mandrake much easier to begin with, and 10 is a lot better that 9.2.

i have two friends who are also making the migration, both using Mandrake 10, and they both love it. Googling and searching this forum will help you solve many problems, but don't be afraid to ask if you don't know whats going on or don't understand the instructions to fix the problem.

Good Luck on your journey to journey to the world of the penguin!
