    Alright. Thanks for the responses. I bought Red Hat 9 because I wanted to try Linux out, and was on dialup I didnt use it for long.

    Im using Mandrake 10 right now. Its been the only one that automatically found my onboard NIC and connected me to the internet, so for now, its what I will stick with. However, I might check out Gentoo

    Alright. So, ive downloaded an ISO image with a bunch of Linux programs for Gentoo. Seems useful. I then download a minimal installer thinking I could use that with the program cd, and get this installed. Nope. I get to a terminal type thing, and am lost.

    Could somebody tell me what I need to download to get Gentoo installed? And what I need to do?

    For installing gentoo printing this page is a requirement.

    The gentoo install is the price you pay for the benefits that gentoo gives. It's not easy, but their manual is excellent.

    Thanks. I know I could have searched for that last night, but I was having such a crappy time, and I was so tired, I needed some sleep

    Thanks for the info.

    Alright, another problem for me. Last night, after failing to install either SuSe or Gentoo, I went in and tried booting to Mandrake. I got the bootloader, selected Linux, and I got to the screen that has the progress bar at the bottom. It froze there. Any idea why?

    How far did you get with gentoo?

    At any rate, F2 should give you verbose, that should give you some more information on where and why it's freezing.
