    which is best


    As the title says, which Linux distro would be best for me?

    I`m a newb when it comes to linux, having spent the best part of my time using windows 98 and 2000.

    I want to install a distro that is easy to dual boot with windows 2000. At the moment I`m having many problems installing FC4 and grub. It just don`t want to go.

    Is there a distro that works well with windows 2000 (windows on the primary, linux on slave) , but is great in a desktop enrvironment and relatively easy to get around? Oh, and of course free.

    Thanks.

    That distro test is amazingly accurate! And has options like "I want to know more about.."

    Great link, man! Someone needs to sticky this if it has not yet been stickied.

    Nice link, I agree it would be useful to sticky this or include it in a newbie FAQ.

    Thanks guys, and my apologies for asking another `which distro is best` question

    I installed Mandrake 10 on my slave drive, and it went great. Lilo works and gives both Windows 2000 and Linux as an option.

    I`ve been trying to get Fedora core 4 to dual boot with W2K but had nothing but grief with grub not working.
