You may want to look at Fedora though. Its more up to date than Redhat 9 (its basically Redhat 10).

Sorry, a bit off topic...

Well Contrasutra, I have been thinking of checking out Fedora, bu I am still technically a newb. Flying through the forums you get conflicting feelings about the stabillity, etc of Fedora. Noticed under your name, it more or less implies you are a Linux Guru. Some issues in Linux take your kind of expertise to resolve and such information is not always so readily available and in a language the Windows (MS sufferers) Users can always interpret.

Just my thoughts.... as I am very hesitant on taking the plunge to Fedora.

Hi Roadhog,

I took the plunge last week and installed Debian, against the wishes of my boyfriend (he was yelling Gentoo). I'd chosen Debian because I'd heard it was simpler, stabler and less hassle free.

After two or three hours of installation, it turned out that X was not going to support my video card (ATI Radeon 9500) without a huge fight - which I can't do, being a nearly total newbie. All the machines here at home use Linux, except my two... so I have to be able to use the console on the fileserver and gateway and such. But that does not prepare you for your own machine!

So I conceded, and installed Gentoo. With all three stages. It's supposed to be hard... but it's not, not really. It's supposed to be far less stable than Debian - I've only crashed it once in a week, and no, I haven't been nice to it.

And now I have an OS which is totally tailored to my machine and I know everyting about it (since my boyfriend even made me do my own kernel configuration!). Somehow, that's nicer than knowing that I could have done it the easy way.

But I'm babbling... sort of. I'd advise you to take the leap. Believe me, it's fun!
