Wich Linux will be good for me?
I am a total newbie in the Linux world. I only started last week, and trying to install Slackware 9.0 on a P100/32mb ram has become an exercise in frustration. :(
I have no previous experience in any kind of Linux or Unix OS, only very good knowledge of MS-DOS and Windows environment since Win 3.0.
So, my next target is a K6-2 500mhz with 256mb ram.
My goal is to use the Linux computer as a gateway to the internet to protect my office network (3 computers) from malicious attacks/viruses/worms coming from the internet.
It will also provide me with Linux experience wich can't be bad. Maybe one day I'll be able to completely get rid of MS Apps in the Office (yeah, I know, I like to dream <sigh> ).
So, if I want something easy to use and to maintain (easy in terms of experience Windows Xp user, not in terms of Linux geeks! :D ), wich distribution should I get?
I already have Slackware 9.0, but I've been told by more knowledgeable people that it's probably the least convenient dist. for someone like me.
Any other suggestions for a free OS?
