Total noob here! compiled 10 kernels so far just for the sake of doing it (seeing how long it would take for my pc). Now i'm ready to sit down and learn some junk! Any Ideas on the best distro to learn linux on? Knoppix? Gentoo? I'm not afraid of work, and I have time to spare when the kids are sleeping. I am willing to do a full install without a GUI, and willing to document my actions so I can write about what I did for other noobs to learn. I have intermediate VB skills, and embarrasingly huge amount of DOS, Windows knowledge (willing to forget it all if the need arises!). Lastly my wife bet me I cant do it! So for my sake and my future! I need to learn this stuff...

If this is amusing, Good! I want to feel that I will have fun doing this... so please don't bust my happy lil' bubble... for now at least.

Please let me, and other know what we need, and possibly where to get what we need before creating a whole new world! Yes! I have a phobia of penguins!

Thank you all in advance before I end this post.

Your's trully,
Venom

Showoff! tongue.gif my vid cards were purchased for a grand total of $30 for both! Brand spankin' new! dont be hatin' biggrin.gif in the normal window i'm getting abolut 780-800, but not full screen. I think it's a great accomplishment for me since every kernel so far failed like one of Frankensteins monsters. The last one worked like a charm without any problems! woo hoo! Ok, back to the gentoo. What do you think I'm doing wrong (btw, my notes look like second year algebra) I can barely understand what I wrote, but I wrote what i understood? hee hee unsure.gif

time for ninja face! ph34r.gif Whatcha' say it with me! loud! 'WHATCHA'
