    Need Help Picking a Linux OS


    I have a Dell Dimension 4600, it's about 3 to 4 years old and I thinks it's time to install Linux on it. But first I need to tell you that I'm going to add a TV Tuner and a 2nd Hard Drive and I would appreciate help in find some good prices on these computer parts. Does anybody have any good suggestions on some Linux software like Ubuntu, Knoppix, SUSE, etc... Keep in mind that I'm a first time user of ANY Linux software and has little or no experience with some Linux OS's.

    If you live in the United States, newegg is a good choice.

    That's really up to you. You can try those sites for some hints:
