    I can't help you to much with the Redhat/Fedora core distros because it has been awhile since I used Redhat- I have stuck primarily with the Debian based ones- you might try some of the forums geared more towards Linux. There are lots of options when it comes to Linux- I'm sure it will easy to find one that is suited to you. That being said, I love these forums....I learn something everyday about securing my Windows box.

    Thanks for your replies,
    Yes I know there are a lot of options and thats the difficult part to me. Iam not an "security expert". would be nice if you guys give a clue in a good linux distro to make easier my try out experience.

    Have to say i really appreciate what you do in this EXCELENT FORUM - since i suscribed to it Ive LEARNED A LOT about securing my box -this make my work easier without too many virus,etc-

    iam planning in make *nix based OS my primaly plattaform. Of course, use MS Windows to play "Starcraft", Diablo or UT :)

    Xandros linux is a fun distro to use, you might check it out. I believe that there is a free version now.

    I don't know about the rh9 problem, but I do know that fedora core 2 is a great distro. Post your question to their forum, I'd say.

    Have a look at distrowatch. Lots of distro's, reviews and opinions.
