Suggestions for a re-noob
I'm relatively new to Linux.. I've tinkered with it here and there for about a year.. I've been working professionally on computer with windows for about 12 years. So I know computers but not so much specifically Linux..
I have a rather old.. computer.. it has 512mb of ram.. 1.1Ghz AMD Athlon processor.. and 2 80Gb hard drives..
I'm looking to try to get running a web server.. with FTP, File sharing with my windows machines.. and anything else that I might have a wild hair to try out.. I've tried a number of different distros in the past.. and I think I've finaly decided on Fedora.. I tried running Fedora 10 on it and that was needless to say not such a good idea.. it took it 20 min to boot..
1. What distro of Fedora would you recommend for that machine.
2. Im good at computers.. not server side networking.. so any suggestions on something that might help me learn that side..
I know its long and I'm sorry but I'm really sick of tinkering with linux.. and would really like to bury my face in it.. and get good at it..
I reccomend that you upgrade your RAM to atlest to 1 GB and see the difference . Fedora will work nice with 1GB of RAMOnly if I could understand the man pages

Mepis or AntiX should run fine with those specs.I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
