    O.o.

    Cheetaman, the code is:

    Code:
    [code]Look!  If you typed this, it would be in a code block![/code]
    As far as a good distro, I am a mortal enemy of Debian, because the installation is so evil. Sarge or Sid may be better, but I dunno...

    For a newbie, I'd recommend SuSE 9.2. You can download the DVD ISO off of their site or (as I prefer) the BitTorrent Linux Mirror Project (which seems to be down at the moment ).

    The mirror list for SuSE 9.2 ISO's is at:

    http://www.novell.com/products/linux.../ftp/eval.html

    Choose whichever you want, and download the ISO. SuSE has a friendly installer and an easy-to-use package management system (YaST). It is RPM-based, so it's pretty easy to use.

    Other people like Mandriva. I've had a few problems with it, but it's an overall good distro.

    I already got an older version of Debian to install...are there other problems with it that make it too difficult to be worth it?

    ???

    Did you mean SuSE? Because an older version of Debian is simply evil (the most updated version of Debian Woody uses a 2.2 kernel, my Gentoo box uses the 2.6.11 kernel).
