I've got 70 MB (*EDIT* I mean gigabytes *EDIT*) on my hard drive just sitting around, nothing to be used for. I currently am running Windows XP.
I'm thinking I'll set up a dual boot between linux and Windows which I have right now.
The only thing is I need to convince my dad to let me do it. What are some good reasons I can tell him to let me install a linux distro on here?
Also, I hear slackware is pretty good. What do you guys think? We already use one computer with linux redhat 7.x on it as our router. There's not a monitor on it, and it's not used as a normal-use computer. Just a router and server.
What are some other good linux distros? Pros and cons of them?
