This area of the site is specifically for newcomers to Linux. If you want to find out what Linux is, what a distribution is, the purpose of GPL software and how to get Linux and install it, this is the place.


Some helpful links


Man pages are available at the command line but they're here (http://linuxreviews.org/man/) in HTML format for ease of use

Want to try several different distros Motub's multiboot page (http://home.planet.nl/~elst0093/motub/multboot.html) will help

Firefox Web Browser Configuration (http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialMozillaConfiguration.html) on Linux for plug-ins and support applications

The First and Only Magazine for the New Linux User http://www.tuxmagazine.com

Intros BY newbies FOR newbies (http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/)

LinuxPlanet (http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/) tutorials

If you really are scared of Linux boot programs, I understand this (http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm) will give you some functionality in Microsoft OSs.

Also see Smart BootManager's Homepage (http://btmgr.webframe.org/).

If your ISP gives you a Speedtouch USB broadband modem, this (http://speedtouchconf.sourceforge.net/) might help.
