I could always tell a friend to get slack or knoppix and try it at threre house , a friend said he was gonna get red hat 9 soon so i can try it there.

(noob to Linux I guess)
I WANT IT TO WORK THE FIRST TIME!

1. Fedora - hated it with a passion that is impossible to put into words
2. knoppix 3.3 HDD install - most everything worked fine i guess, but KDE blows, and it tends to bloat and slow the linux experience. 3.1 was awesome, but 3.3 gets the big from me.
3. Slackware 9.1 - Hacnslash and i are in the same boat on this one... 9.1 pwns the known universe. The only bummers about making it work were
A. Nvidia drivers (cake easy to get going, and youll have to do it with ANY distro you choose)
B. USB mouse (this was a balls-out CHORE, but i conquered it, and can show you how to as well)
C. Patching orinoco drivers for wardriving (cake easy also, and also a 10 min fix)
If j00r hardware is decent but not on the bleeding edge of tech, slack should work for you with minimal effort. just remember to unckeck that KDE box on install

And right behind hacnslash you can find me pimping Slack as well.
you KNOW im gonna say slack....if you want it to run the first time, then read on it before you install it. also make sure you know your hardware since you might need to configure shit.
