    what about the other versions

    Thanks a lot is a great site
    I will use it to download at least RedHat 7.2

    But by the way what about the other versions available here with me

    Slackware is 8.1

    and corel os well just like slackware is the only one version available

    they are not secure?

    And why not use red hat 6.0 is unstable or unsecure today?

    RedHat 6.0 is ages old. Newer versions will work better, look better, and be more secure.
    Anyway, I think RH 7.2 was when they incorporated Nautilus into GNOME. Nautilus is why I recommended 7.1 for you. There's nothing wrong with Nautilus for newer computers, but it will probably devour yours. All this is if you go with RedHat, of course.
    These other ones, though, like Corel, rock linux and easeware, I haven't even heard of. The best is probably to try something a little more "standard", so to speak, or you might find yourself in trouble with noone to help you.

    it also depends on how much you just want to "jump in" to linux. If you have no problem reading the documentation, and spending time setting it up (so you can play on it indefinately) maybe gentoo/LFS is the way to go. But that is a tall order for someone just starting. I would suggest RedHat/Mandrake until you reach the point that you feel comfortable enough to do a LFS/Gentoo install.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.

    I hope today I'm going to begin to download red hat 7.1
    I search gentoo, is a linux version is in't it?, but LFS/ I still don't find what it is?

    There are a program to know if the downloaded iso is like the iso in the ftp site? where can I find it?

    I did a temporal installation of red hat 6.0 in my laptop and I find the next problems:
    I can't find the right drivers in linux for: modem, audio,

    The mouse works very good, the screen well doit not well but I get a good gnome desktop, with problems because some windows was bigger than my monitor.

    Already I uninstalled red hat 6.0 because I hope RH 7.1 helpme to solve it better

    With 163mhz cpu, I wouldn't even attempt to install lfs or gentoo. Take WAY to much time compiling your system. I suggest debian since its easy to use and doesn't take up much space.

    Good Idea, if we are in matter
    wich debian version do you suggest?
