    OK, so I have decided to install Ubuntu. I was wondering though how I would be able to use the internet in ubuntu. Because Red hat linux that I had before wasnt able to detect my dialup modem(winmodem i think its called). So will I have to get drivers for that?

    in Ubuntu you wont have KPPP ( its in Kbuntu... KDE )
    you have to configure wvdial and ppp... its easy...

    Try the live demo prior to installing in order to determine if your modem will be detected. Then, if all works out, just simply install from the live demo via the shortcut on your desktop.

    try different flavors..

    running a live cd is also a great idea so that you can try different linux distributions. I picked kubuntu because straight up debian sarge was too difficult to configure (without reading a 250 page manual), and knoppix didn't detect my cable modem. There are plenty of distros that will run live, so if you've got the bandwidth you might try downloading more than one before you install.
