Could you explain the Symatic installs for me?

Also I have decided that I want to run linux perminatly on my 2nd rig. Which version is the best? Also can I use aol instant messenging through a program for linux? I'm getting excited.

the answer is...YES!!!! you can, if you have kde desktop environment, it uses kopete, which is like trillian, and you have gaim, which is way better. you can also use any instant messenging service with these, they contain the codes for all of em, msn yahoo aim etc

Or you can use WINE (search for wine hq in google), which allows you to use just about any game or program on linux (even cs:s with tweaking ask if u want me to tell u how) i think doom 3 is a open gl game

Synaptic is a gui front-end for apt-get, the backbone of debian, a very very famed distro.
I'd run tuxracer to give them a laugh. If you want to surprise them go with ubuntu + e17: the best looking wm out there - but knoppix would be easiest to demonstrate - pop it in, boot. Voila.

You can show them around the command line...

To create an install disc with the Ubuntu, should I just burn an Iso image on a cd-r, then boot from that and install?

I have about a week to get familar with things and get awesome games. So I'll keep you posted. I'm excited about joining the linux clan.

Yes. Burn the image to a CD-R, and then reboot your computer with the CD in your optical drive.

I should also note that I am using D-link pci wireless internet card (has an antenna, no cables). When I ran Knoppix it did not install drivers for it or something and I could not get on the internet.

Is there anything I should know about connecting to a wireless encrypted network? It runs from a pc upstairs with xp, not that makes much of a diff I suppose.
