Hi all
I m a total beginner in the world of Linux....at the level 0...and i m beginning using Linux on VirtualBox...I know only C and little Java .....so i had few doubts

1) For a total beginner like me..which is better...i have Ubuntu 8.04, Fedora 8 and openSuse 11 with me.

2) I tried Fedora 8...all was fine...i loved the eye candy....but wen i tried to update or install any package i get an error with following messege

"Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: acpacks. Please verify its path and try again"

is it normal???
i googled it but forums explained it in complex terms

3)can I use my Nvidia card with Linux through VirtualBox???

Any of them should be fine. Although I personally prefer Ubuntu.

2) I tried Fedora 8...all was fine...i loved the eye candy....but wen i tried to update or install any package i get an error with following messege

Don't distro hop because you get an error. The more time you try it out and troubleshoot it the more experienced you will become.

3)can I use my Nvidia card with Linux through VirtualBox???
No I dont think you can.
