    hard to know where to start.

    two recent distro releases are supposed
    to be relatively quick & painless to
    install & get up, but i haven't yet tried
    either.  they are

      mandrake 8.2 (available from
    cheapbytes.com for about $10)

      SuSE 8.0 (dunno where to get that)

    this site:


    seems to have huge amounts of info.  how
    much can be absorbed at any single
    session is quite another question.

      then, of course, there's the
    INSTALLFEST .  i think there's one
    happening in denver in early oct,
    perhaps the 12th.  when there'll
    be one in boulder, i dunno.

                 good luck in your quest!
