Which distro for... a newbie?
Posted 31 October 2002 - 12:24 AM
I am a fairly quick learner and want to learn Linux.
I have an old PIII 450, 512 megs of ram, 60 gig drive, GeForce II MX-400 64meg video card. This is the computer I would like to learn Linux on.
What distro would be good to learn off of, and would run decently on this computer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My first attempt at Linux was over a year ago, and really didn't go well due to just lack of understanding of the user levels. I think I have got those fixed up and I can compile things.

Ditto. Hook it up w/ MDK 9.0 and you should have a wonderful time this time around.
I would recommend Mandrake 9.0. Very user-friendly, and should work fine on that box.
