Wait, so it's PCLinuxOS? I thought you told me on AIM that it was Ubuntu.

Which is it?

there's nothing wrong with ubuntu. the dapper installer is probably the easiest thing for a beginner. when i installed dapper, all i had to do to get my wireless working was enter my wep key.

I started out with Fedora Core * distros and I found them very easy for the n00b. The Anaconda installer made everything a piece of cake. I've heard Ubuntu is pretty easy to use as well, as ppl have stated above.

It's "PCLinuxOS" ... When you say PC Linux no one knows what you're talking about.

Just hold on A minute....

you are using PCLinuxOS and it works but it also Sucks???? just so you know PCLinuxOS is Abbr. to PCLOS. i'd say get it install it (.92 version) and decide for yourself.
