After UBUNTU, well my next question... Actually, I gave my frnd who has a CD writer my DIGIT DVD containing UBUNTU (my previous string : UBUNTU: Good to Begin?) , but I found it was only a CD-WRITER and not a combo drive.. SO, I could not begin my sail on LINUX... So, I hve ordered UBUNTU from its site.. But I cannot sit still , So I have asked my frnd to e-mail his MANDRAKE CDs to me.. Now, I wish to know is it easy to begin and use? I hve heard its the easiest DISTRO? By the way, what is a distro? Will I be able to use it along with my WIN XP SP2? How much hard disk space would MANDRAKE 10.1 take up? God, I am so confused..
