If you want to go hardcore, learn how to crack WEPs with Linux tools lolol
LOL's no! Cracking WEP's in Linux is childsplay, if you're really hardcore you run with a custom compiled kernel and no GUI!
BAM!

Check out the VMWare/Linux guide in the Folding section. You can run either a 32 or 64 bit Linux distro in VMWare and play with it there... heck, depending on the size of you main HDD, you can run several distros because the set up requires 8G of HHD space each.
VMWare is free too
http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...ng-vmware.html
There are a few slight variations of the folding set up, but you won't need that unless you intend to also fold in Linux but the guide will get you set up with VMWare and a Linux Distro to play with

Definitely Slackware first.

Ubuntu is neat and easy, but Slackware really taught me the most of any distro.

I also second the VMware, it makes swapping and playing with OS's fun and easy. Heck its mostly the reason I got my quad, I wanted to play with VMware more.

OT: Hey Hundred Gunner, How is OpenSuse? Any thoughts on it? I thought I remember you using it, not sure though.

Suse is great. It's my distro of choice; it is from where my Linux roots stem. I started off in 10.0 and didn't like it a whole lot. I then tried 10.3 some 3 years later, and I've finally found a distro with which I am comfortable.

I think it provides a good balance between ease and power. Some people don't like the Yast control center, but personally, I like how it centralizes the OS with its own device manager, package manager, etc. Most other distros only have a dinky thing like "GNOME network utility" or "KDE manager" or something... I'd rather have something made for the OS rather than just the DE.

Some things were a bit hard for me to get working, though, like Compiz-Fusion. A possible reason could be 64-bit, which I used exclusively. I haven't used 32-bit; it might work better in 32-bit.

Other than that, I think things like 1-click install make things easy. For example, on the nVidia site, there is a 1-click install button specifically for the Suse distro that allows you to download a file which will fetch the driver and automate the process for you.

I recommend you give it a try and see if you like it. 11.0 comes out June 18.
