Hi, a friend wants me to download the Linux os for him and put it onto a cd. I have searched the web to try and download it but I can't understand all the files that keep coming up. Can somebody please point me in the right direction, to find a website where I can download it. I am running windows XP home....Thanks in advance...

Linux usually comes in three ISO images each of about 650MB. Very time consuming.

click here REDHAT LINUX

click here
Mandrake Linux.

i was going to suggest going for knoppix first,it runs from a bootable cd and doesnt need to be installed useful to see if all your hardware works but unfortunatly click here

mandrake click here is good and has a lot of software with it.

You don't say whether you have broadband or not. if not forget it. Our own PCA mag did Mandrake 9.1 couple of months ago and that was on a DVD.If you ask FE nicely, nah forget it :>)
