    if is there, but I can't see Red Hat selling. Maybe mandrake since they filed chapter 11. But it is possible. I read a couple of other articles about this proposal and the result that I perceive is it will probably go with SuSE. But it aint over till the fat lady sings :D

    I understand knoppix is a pretty good linux distro. I tried to download it last night. I tried several download sites but they said due to a copyright law suit they had taken it out of circulation. Several different distros had a message almost exactally like knoppix. So until they get the law suit settled I will just have to wait. :(
