After discoving a copy of Mandrake 9.1 that a friend had given me was full of corrupted files...sigh... Im looking for another copy of some sort of Linux to install on an old Compaq 350mhz 128meg computer.
Ive been putzing around with run from CD Knoppix, which is basicly a Debian distro and have managed to configure a server, get on line etc though finding a newsgroup reader has me stumped at the moment..shrug.
Anyways...does anyone have and preferences in a Linux distro for a beginner? Ive got highspeed access at a friends shop and can download and burn any of the current versions of Linux
Which one is best, with the simplest learning curve, best hardware detection ans so forth?
