  1. I'm new here, sorry if this has been said before, or doesn't apply. Give "SimplyMEPIS" ago. [www.mepis.com] Debian based, KDE desktop[gnome too], all the applications a new linux user needs, Firefox, Openoffice, Gimp, Kmail [it is easy to install Thunderbird or Evolution], Xine, Xmms,digicam, Samba and more... Comes on 1 live CDrom, can be downloaded from many places, or order on line. Install time, 15 minutes on new PC [AMD64 +3000-512mb-80gHDD] or about 45-60 minutes on older hardware. Needs at least 2.5g HD, 128meg RAM, 300mhz CPU to be usable. The install is done once you have booted the computer from the CDrom. Booting from the CD will take you to a fully working desktop [with applications ready to use] that can be used with out touching your current setup or even needing a HDD [runs in memory only] allowing you to test things, see if you hardware is detected etc or just to use for normal PC use, surf the internet, write letters, listen to music etc. To install you click on a link/icon on the desktop and the GUI installer starts, 1 reboot and the bliss begins. More info and download links. http://mepisnightcrew.org/index.php?view=ul MEPIS Forums http://www.mepis.org/tracker http://www.mepislovers.org/ http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/fo...p?s=&forumid=64 happy Debian user loving MEPIS setup, it is SimplyMEPIS bliss NH
