Need Linux info

Thread hijacked.

Realized that we did not have a sticky with helpful Linux links. However, this thread has some of the links listed on it. So, I made a copy of the original thread and left only the posts relative to the topic. - pointreyes

Here are afew more links.

www.distrowatch.com
This site explains the differences between distributions.


www.linuxiso.org
You can download iso files to burn with nero.
Since most distros are free this is a good place to get them.
This is where I got knoppix 3.3

Guru's webpage has moved to
http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/

but later it will be merged with the packman webpage, which is good since packman can be used as a YAST source.
