Hello. I hope I am in the right group for my question and I certainly am
not trying to test anyone's patience.
I am a Windows "vet" ( since about 1993 ) but have done a lot of extensive
reading on Linux and it's * on the web, ect. This is something I
really would like to learn because I intend to broaden my horizons with
1. As an individual who does not know the first thing about Linux, which
version would you recommend (preferably free ) to be installed on a 166mhz
pentium with 2 hard drives ( a 2.0 and a 6.0 )that I would like to
configure to be a "dual boot" system. I am currently running Windows 98
2. Does anyone know of any outstanding links on the net geared towards
Linux and the newbie ?
3. I keep hearing horror stories of system crashes. How much risk of
crashing a system during an install is there and can it permanately damage
the system ?
