Linuxiso.org seems to be a little outdated. I guess the maintainers have better things to do now. Though it is a good resource, your not going to get the latest releases of the more popular distro's. Taking a quick glance, they don't have FC4 or Slackware 10.2 available for download, which both have been out for quite some time now.

There is a "Download Linux" link on the right hand side of this forum.

All downloads on LinuxISO seem to be broken

so it's not a good idea to go there :P

But you can always go there to see some distro's that are available

best thing is to use a bittorrent client. On windows I prefer Bittoronado. When there are seeds out there it's a pretty good way to get lot's o' stuff. I think most of my distros came from .torrent sites. IMHn00bO MEPIS 3.3.2 is kick-ash-stuff! Great for newbies. IMHO Fedora3/4 sucks. I could never get new packages to download and install so I proclaimed "hang it" and moved on. Xandros is premium. Debian is my favorite though it's sometimes a little difficult, but Synaptic Package Manger is awesome for installing packages (which is really a graphical front end for apt-get I believe). Ubuntu and Kubuntu are basicly customized Debian distros (they're great btw). Then there are the slakware-types like Slakware 10.2, Slax (Kill Bill edition looks quite nice).

OpenSuSE

You can download Open SUSE for free either by network install, FTP for ISOs or Bittorrent. If you need a program to download torrents, the java client Azureus works well.
