Hi smile
If you want to try Linux.
Do so know without changing anything on your PC.
Run live CD instead.
openSUSE provides 2 options.
Live GNOME.
Live KDE.

Personally I prefer KDE over GNOME.

If you like/prefer this type of OS.
Download & install the DVD version.
Though you can install from the Live CD's too.

http://www.opensuse.org/en/

Not only do you get an OS & Firefox browser.
But openoffice is there as well.

N.B. Other Linux is available... lol!

Pretty sweet.

Worth a look indeed. May even look at something like this when i get my basic HTPC up and running as i was mentioning to George in the other threads.

I need some memory , a graphics card and a HD. Then we can install. Might be a few months but wont hurt putting onto DVD.

Whats better 32bit or 64bit. ? system will be low powered so went 32bit for time being.

I use 64-bit Linuxes, but for an HTPC, 32-bit would be fine to keep costs down on RAM and stuff.

SUSE is also a fine distro I have used it in the past and had good luck with it , But as zebadee said there are others out there as well a good place to go to find out what is available is distro watch http://distrowatch.com/ another great forum for any information and/or help with linux is Scots newsletter forums http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com .
And personally I like KDE as well even Ubuntu has a KDE version it is called Kubuntu

Hi smile
I had problems with Ubuntu & Kubuntu 64 bit.
I reckon it is my Raid set up (intel software).
(32 bit might be less problematic though.)
I even had dual boot problems keeping Win 7 Raid0 & the 2 linux OS installed to non-raid.
However no such problem with openSUSE to non-raid, with Win 7 still Raid0.
I might try openSUSE on Raid0 soon.

That would be impressive to see you do that Zeb.

Hi smile
Update.
Have been running dual boot with openSUSE since 1st mentioned.
Have also tried Kubuntu & Mandriva.
Of these I prefer Mandriva.
But I have have dual boot problems with the latter.
All version are 64 bit.
As for Raid0, it doesn't look like it is happening.
Using SSD's as I am now.
Probably means I'd see little if any benefit anyway.

Glad to hear you got it working zebadee , I kind of liked Mandriva also ,It is just a bit better than Suse , although I was running an older version of Suse so I cant say anything about 11.2 , but I assume you have Mandriva Spring and that one is good .

Hi smile
Mandriva is the best dressed one.
So the icons are clear as to what they are for.
Forums appear to cross a wider spectrum than some.
SUSE is about to go 11.3.
Years ago I used Nubuntu.
So not a newbie.
Just not used used it this current set up ( or the last 2 or 3 to be honest).
SUSE has the better installer/bootloader for some reason.
Mandriva can fail to install properly on some.
Though you can manually bypass this.
It says something about beta.
Which my Mandriva 2010 spring is.

I agree with you zebadee Suse does have the best boot loader It is straight forward and easy to modify, The only reason I favour Ubuntu is that it is very easy to install and it is up and running within an hour after you insert the cd, and it is very user friendly especially for someone who has no experience with linux , The only drawback is if one has more than one OS on-board it is very hard to change the boot-loader sequence , but it can be done using the Konsole
