Hello everybody!!!

It seems stupid but the only thing I know is that I must use Red Hat...So, I don't know about what kind of programs I will need like for exmple smthi similar to office or winamp or media player!

Could u tell some basic ones that I ll need?

Am I gonna be able to burn cds?

Please help me!!!

Well,

The first thing you need to do is obtain a distrubution of linux for install ...

Since RedHat is going to stop support for RedHat Linux 9 in April, I would recommend that you use something else instead ... probably Mandrake 9.2 (or Fedora Core 1).

You can obtain each of these as ISOs from our download page : .... mandrake 9.2 should be the easiest to download, burn and install ... You could use RedHat 9, or Fedora Core 1 as well.

Once you download the 3 iso files, you must burn the images to CD and then do the install:

See how to verify the ISO images, see these instructions on how to burn ISOs, and this ISO FAQ ...

Once linux is installed, you can use cdrecord to burn CDs, xmms, totem or mplayer to listen to MP3's, mplayer, gstream or totem to watch video, openoffice.org as an MS Office replacement, etc.
