    Alright, I just got an old 200Mhz system working that has been down for a few years and I mfigured I would use it for "testing" so to say. My first experiment on the machine I was hoping to do was install Linux on it. But as I search for a distribution and any kind of FAQ, I just get deeper into confusion. If anyone has worked with Linux, I request that you share any recommendations of sources that got you up and running.

    A huge resource of information for people new to Linux.
    For ease of installation, I think Red Hat 7.2 is still the best.

    Mandrake 8.1 or 8.2 is just as easy and RH. I use 8.1 on my Linux box.
