Can you really recommend a red hat zero release to a newbie?  What sort of 
introduction would that be if the previous quality control problems are 

The only zero release I could recommend would be debian and if you would 
prefer Red Hat or Mandrake go for a tried and tested version.

just my 2p


ps.  I can burn the open office and mozilla versions that are on the lastest 
linux format dvd if that helps?
