Can't resist tossing in 2 cents, although I probably should. Users get a bit defensive when it comes to distributions.
There is a large range of attitudes when it comes to non-free stuff. Fedora is somewhere at the puritanical end of the spectrum. Non-free stuff can be installed but it can become a bit of work.
Ubuntu also shys from the non-free items but at least they make it easy to install things like java and codecs for those who want .
Mepis and PcLinuxOS are 2 examples of systems that work out-of-the-box. The user is left to read the non-free licenses if they feel concerned. Mepis is changing repositories at the moment, so stay away from it till next month.
2 cents and out.WARNING: I may be telling you more than I know !

I turned to Ubuntu, thanks for that tip! It works well, Java and also old SW's which don't operate with newer W*** got installed with no problem with Wine. So far everything looks good. Kids are happy and so am I. WGA driver installing still puzzles me but I bet I'll find help for it on other threads.
Thank you all!
