    Linux Mandrake vs Windows XP Home

    Hi all,
    I would to try something other than Windoze,like Linux.
    i am tired of all the problems I am having with XP.
    Tech TV.com has Linux Mandrake as a freeware but I have no idea on how to download it to work with windoze or with a partition.
    Any ideas would be helpful..
    Thanks

    You can download Mandrake and other Linux distrobutions from http://www.linuxiso.org. What would you like to do with Windows on Linux?

    Don't worry. I would suggest that you try Mandrake, SuSE or Redhat. If you have any problems whatsoever check out www.linuxdoc.org and/or www.linuxnewbie.org

    Feel free to PM/email me or post in Alt OS about ANYTHING to do with linux, there are many people who would be willing to help
