Try Caldera, Suse, or Mandrake. If you just want a starter CD go to www.linuxmall.com . CDs are $1.89
If you have enough of an internet connection to handle a 600+ meg download, Redhat 6 ISO images are available all over the net. An FTP search for redhat6.iso should find you one. I suppose you also need cd burner too. These are not illegal pirated versions, btw. Open source.
I echo Zacko - and I add that the best way to install using that RH5 CD is to use it to set a glass of ice tea on while you install something a little more up to date.
Cleanest Practice Setup
I'm going to try my first rollout of linux in the form of an old copy of RH 5 that I found lurking around my software archives. Is there a simple way to install this OS on a comp that already has W98 loaded? I just need a simple install to start learning this OS. Should I get another version? I've heard that older RH can be a bear to setup. Is there a version that is cd bootable to a working OS environment?
Heh, heh, I get the point. Thanks for the input, guys.
