    but i'd suggest trying fedora first because it has a larger user base, so greater support for problems you might face.

    If you want to really learn Linux "on the job", try Debian, it's quite a handful...

    Other than that, Fedora's just fine for starting out.

    I tried mandrake but I ran into a problem during installation.

    The I had 30+ gigs free but it would only let me resize my windows partition down 1gb, so I only had 1gb for mandrake which wasnt enough. Any idea hy I cant use more than 1GB?
    What is C++?

    Too much data in your windows partition to shrink it without destroying it maybe?

    Maybe, but I had 30gigs of free space?

    And it would only do EXACTLY 1gb.

    I dont believe I have ever had that much on my hard drive so I am pretty sure that there wasn't any file fragments on the drive. (I guess thats what you call them, the crap thats left after you delete something off of your computer... when you delete something, its still actually there until you write over it right?)
