fc6-pre-dvd-i386.torrent would be the one. That is if you are burning to a DVD? If not go binary.

Yes.

Not to dash your dreams, but don't use linux *just* to get the pretty pretty effects. They might not turn out so great (might be a tad hard to install or something...). Use it because you want to, period, not because you got hyped over some screenshots or videos...

BTW Compiz *does* make using linux a lot more fun. I'd definitely go for installing it, but don't make that your _only_ reason for using linux.

I want to learn Linux, because I m too narrow minded when it comes to OS's. I want to learn the basics, and maybe take some classes, I'm in no hurry.

I'd start off with Ubuntu, just to learn the very basics of navigating a terminal and other neccesary things, then I'd move on to Fedora, SuSe, Slackware, Debian, or any number of other more "full-featured" distros that will give you more flexability than Ubuntu, but still be fairly easy to get running and forgiving if you mess something up. Finaly, it comes to install FreeBSD or Gentoo, niether of which I have even come close to mastering, but are wicked-fast and totaly customizable.

I defiantly agree with this. But I must say this, after to get use to organizing yourself with the cube it hard to go back to just one screen.

Yep- ONCE you get used to Linux, you are SPOILED.

Takes a while tho.. Good luck!
post #28 of 30
I gotta agree with these guys. Linux is for those who are prepared to become obsessed. lol

I would use ubuntu for a couple weeks to get used to the UI (Gnome or KDE). Once you've done that then move onto doing some basic terminal work. THEN you can install a big boys distro

I give my vote to Kubuntu, easy for beginners to master. Plus, it uses the KDE interface, which I like a little better than GNOME. Here is a post I made about this regarding USB booting a few minutes ago:

Here are the links:

http://www.ubuntu.com/

KDE Example: http://linux.exton.net/debex-kubuntu...-skrivbord.jpg

Kubuntu Download Link: http://ubuntu-releases.cs.umn.edu//k...rnate-i386.iso
These are .iso CD images. You will need a CD burner that handles these. I recommend doing a google search ".iso burn free" or something. You can also go to http://www.download.com/ and search for ".iso". I use MagicISO, but the shareware version (I paid for it) won't burn files over 300MB, so I can't really recommend that to you unless you want to pay for it.

(Omitted part about USB Booting)
Have fun with Linux!

I dont find ubuntu too "kiddy" vs say FC5. It seemed FC5 was much more auto install vs ubuntu. However ubuntu seems to be very popular therefore it also seems to have the most support.
