[Wolves] Need some help!

I'd put in a vote for SuSE.  Its very easy to install (even I can do
it), and the included software is pretty extensive.  The disk
partitioning system works well - don't worry.  Its final selling point,
for me, was that it is German, not US sourced.  I'm a little tired of US
software companies, and Red Hat for me feels just a little too much like
the Linux version of Microsoft.  Please note to certain posters on this
board - please note implicit irony in these latter comments - I'm rather
tired of being flamed!!!

As Steve has said I use SuSE, its what I've always used and it is really

easy to set up, easier than Windows in my opinion.

If you ever need any help in setting it up feel free to email me with=20
any questions and I'll do my best to help.
