There's no point in getting SuSe because you have to pay for it... You should download Red Hat Linux 7.3 for your computer. Go to:
This page will explain what you have to do to install Linux and what particular files you need.
This is where you need to download 3 ISO (CD images) and burn them on to a CD-R.
Good luck!
P.S. My Red Hat Linux box is connected to a cable modem and gets around 150/kb for download, and since Red Hat 7.3 was created for Intel based i686 architectures, I have a Pentium 4, 2.2 GHz, and my Java programs (using JDK 1.4) are super super fast! Linux rocks!
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
