    LOL, I choose the OS to use. I wanted to use it since it's production, I'm not going to use it as an everyday OS really just as a learning tool for when I graduate and start looking for a SA job. The driver readme said it may or maynot work and all the dependancys were installed as did the drivers but the card never showed up for use. We tried to compile and it kicked by error, the install kicked back errors as well. We worked on it maybe 45 min in class and never got it working.

    It may be workable.
    Take a look through this page:

    If you want CentOS, cool. Scientific Linux may be a bit easier for you, though. All of the stability, with a few newer things like wireless.

    I would not do anything as root except the install part. Everything else should be done as a normal user.

    That thought has crossed my mind too.

    Yeah, they have moved their version of RH forward.
