Finally decided to go and get Linux!
I got magazine CDs earlier this year and last year with RedHat 5.2 and SuSE 5.2, but none with v6 of Linux.
So I decided to go and see what download options were available.
Went to redhat, download, mirrors and Europe. I was delighted to see that the ISP that offers free phone calls at the weekends and after 6 in weekdays was offering it for download (Esat).
So, I went to the download site, browsed to the redhat 6.1 folder, and was met with 2 options. I picked the one that seems to resemble the contents of the 5.2 CD.
The folder that I'm currently copying is named 'i386'. There is another folder, with one file called iso. Now please don't tell me that I have to download this after the i386 download is complete! [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Back to teh download. Helpful IE5 kindly tells me that I have 1 day and 16 hours to wait. [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img]
If you can get the last issue of Maximum Linux it will have a CD of Mandrake 6.0 or 6.1 in it. (basically Redhad 6.0/6.1 with the mandrake tweaks so any redhat RPM installer will work!)
as for the two different types of files. Yes you needed to get the I386 (this is the one to work with "intel compatible" processors. The ISO version is what you will want to download if you want to make a bootable CD with everything on it. (it's basically an image of the the dist's cd.)
