I would say yes. Slackware, caldera, redhat, and any other linux gives you
the option of going at it *, but redhat and caldera also give you
the option of using their gui config tools. For a newbie, they can be a
godsend - just be careful about becoming too dependant on them, as you
probably won't have them when things start to really go wrong.
