    it should be GNU or GNU/LINUX Distro

    I think for someone new to linux,RedHat is the best for ease of use right from installation.

    @firewall : You are right. I think it is based on RH. But still an Indian Live distro ;) RH didn't give any live distro :)

    Anyway, I have just come to know that PCQ Linux does support Internal Modem. Although I haven't yet tried it, but Kudzu reported me a missing hardware when I removed the internal modem from MoBo. Will try to configure and let you guys know.

    free bsd has the most efficent networking implimentation thus used by major conpanies for networking tasks(yahoo uses it big time) Free BSD is good for networking and it out performs all other OS in this field, other wise i think linux is a better option in terms of support

    You know what ? It was the BSD guys at berkeley who developed TCP/IP protocol stack for UNIX platform back in 1983 or something ... their distribution called BSD originally created a storm in the networking market with BSD Networking Release 1 & 2.

    All the other UNIX vendors (including Microsoft) implemented their own TCP/IP protocol stack by basing their work on BSD's implementation !!!

    @ firewall : Mine is a DLink Internal Modem. I think its a Motorola chipset. Secondly, I just came across a link on PCQ site that has an article about using Internal Modem with PCQ Linux. So will have a look at it and see :)
