    I am reading it very carefully. Even if I can't end up installing it and using it, I can still learn from the tutorial.

    i dont know what the fastest rpm based distros is but i know many people would recommend suse. but thats not very speedy.

    i suggest getting finding some sort of rpm distro and compiling your own kernel.

    http://distrowatch.com/stats.php?sec...kagemanagement - This gives you a list of distros using the various package types. The major RPM based distros are Red Hat/Fedora, Mandriva and Suse.
