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

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 :D
