I'f you're going to go with Linux then I'd recommend Mandrake. Many people would also recommend Suse as well but I never personally used that so I can't vouch for it but you many want to give that a whirl. I'd stay away from Fedora though, I don't think it's meant for anyone besides those willing to work on it when they find problems. Mandrake has the Community Download edition available about a month I think before the pay CD release. It's a way for all the early adopters to leach, find bugs, and kvetch before the people paying Mandrakesoft's bills get their version. :) Wait two weeks or so after the release for the errata to flow in then install and run their update utility. Mandrake served me well for a number of years until I felt I needed something different which is why I am here. It's still the distribution I'd recommend to anyone who doesn't feel like bothering with all the internals.
