  6. Personally I say Ubuntu. It's a user friendly version of debian that comes on one cd. Nice, sleek, and small. Link -> http://www.ubuntulinux.net/ Debian is NOT a newbie oriented distribution. It is designed for flexibility and power. Ease of use only comes if you are an experienced Linux user.

  13. WARNING! A custom kernel compile is a very complicated procedure. Use this procedure only if there are no packages in the debian repository that can get your hardware/software configuration working for you. New users should read up on debian kernel compiles and kernel compiles in general before attempting this. This guide, its author(s), and/or contributors, are not responsible for any damage inflicted on your system by following these instructions. You compile and use a custom kernel at your own risk. The following instructions detail a compile of a 2.6.xx kernel using The Debian Way.
