Debian is unlike any other Linux you will have used. In fact you may catch a beating by some free software advocates if you don't refer to it as Debian GNU/Linux. Like voodooHAL mentioned, Debian is a horrible beginner distribution. Only switch to it when you are pretty comfortable at the command line and can edit config files without much trouble. If you have never built your own kernel, please stay away from Debian until you have hehe.

ragweed: oops didn't even know emerging from a cdrom was an option. Any particular reason for gentoo :\? Like psychopuppy said, you really only see the benefits with an internet connection.

-Chop- (there was a little ascii drawing of my network but the board doesn't like whitespace so it's gone now).
You are using dialup as well as cable?

its easy to install (for NIX anyway)
apt-get is your friend
it won't hate your hardware
its the double-ought shizzle
there is a knoppix.net forum and tons of literature on it
JUST USE IT!!!
you wont be sorry. Forget the other stuff for now... YOU'RE LEARNING LINUX!!! Dont try to be "1337" by cutting your teeth on slack or gentoo, you'll thank yourself in the end. If you have your heart set on not using redhat, mandrake or SuSE, use Knoppix. Seriously dude..Seriously
