Hey Guys,
I am just here to ask a good specific question. Okay, I run two machines in my room one Is my gaming machine which of course run Windows XP. But really do not like using it as a workstation. I am a pretty fast learner I have already messed around with Knoppix 5.1.1 Which i really am not that fond of even with all the features it comes with. I am now looking at Mandriva distro cause i hear its based off Red Hat, which is from i hear 'The King Distro OF Linux' but not wanting to pay $80.00 bucks for. I am also wanting to make a server out of the machine as a proxy server while at work I will have no trouble finding a blocked Proxy Site to check my Personal Email's. My specs on this machine as follows:
AMD Athlon XP 1.5 GHz , 512MB Ram, 32Mb Video Card (Radeon 7000 With DIV Hookup) 160 GB Hard drive (149.89 GB) Asrock MB. SO Can U guys help me out?

Ubuntu is a good begineer distribution but if your wanting something Redhat based then go with Fedora or CentOS.
