I have an older machine thats a 550 and I was bored this weekend and I want to instal Linux on it. It seems that Mandrake and Redhat are the most popular... Where can I download the files to instal eitherone? And what one do you reccommend? Thanks...

They are both pretty similar - I have never used Redhat, but used Mandrake 7.1 - except for the installation programs.
I would recomend buying a copy of Linux. SuSE Linux Personal/Professional both come with Installation support and Loads of manuals. They also come with cool free stickers :D
