    Kanotix 2005-02 dual boot hd install. For ease of setup, this one is hard to beat.

    arch linux. The only negative thing I have about linux is that I have to remember the location of config files and what does each one do which drives me nuts.

    Wink Re: What distro do you all use?

    Been running fc4 for a spell, ran fedora1 when it came out. I had slackware installed other day but i had net login enabled and my pass/name would not let me see the rest of the dist-next time i will know better. I have tried mandrake and a couple of knoppix`s. I guess fc4 is easiest for me to run as i`m still in training[self-train] but starting to get results out of my sticking with it and not giving up. Like to try other distro`s and will in time.

    That more that a distro doesn't do right off the bat, the more you learn.

    Re: What distro do you all use?

    With the exception of Gentoo I have gone to bed with every one in the voting list. I am not too hot on the Red Hat series. OK they are stable but they can only show the first 15 or 16 partitions of a hdd. Also the RH/FC don't have cfdisk.

    I vote Suse because it is more robust and can be tossed around anywhere in a hdd. It is the disto I go to when others stop.

    Suse does have an irritating point that it doesn't like me messing around the hdds once it is installed. It doesn't boot after I remove the slave away and boot immediately after I put it back any other disk. Other distros are quick happly to readjust themselves after the hardware detection.

    Current Knoppix 4 is infested with bugs.

    Ubuntu has a bad point that the current version boots me into a user mode but permits me to use root terminal. That is a half way house because I can mount and see the locked system files (its own as well as others) but can't use the desktop editor like kwrite to do the modifications. It is irritating to rely on vi every time.

    Ubuntu for me. Tried alot of other distros, but I like the way ubuntu has set things up. It can be a 100% hands off worry free OS, or you can custom tune it as much as you want.
