Already thinking about it. But first I thought some content would be useful.

My goal is to run thought the install process of each main distro/or a
derivative of it,ie Ubuntu (for deb), Fedora (for Red Hat), Open
Suse (Suse/Novell) and maybe another probably Mandriva, that I feel a
newcomer is likely to use (sorry Ron no gentoo or linux from scratch
here). I wish to cover differences in gnome and kde and where
applicable which programs new users may wish to place in gnome from
kde, eg. K3b, or viva versa.

Nice tip I will be turning the headings into the links for the sites
as well as having a Link bar across the top.

Or what I am hoping to do is a screen shoot heaven for install process
as a video could well go on for a hour. Or possibly just Video input
sections not entirely sure which yet.

Ahh erm, My mistake head working faster than my fingers was meant to
be OpenOffice and (missed completely) other.

Think this one was just typing. But ta.
