How much memory do you have?
128 to 256M RAM: debian, slax live, zenwalk. knoppix live, gentoo, slackware
256 to 512 The same as above,
512 or more: any linux distro suitable for your CPU.
How much memory was on it?
Do you know how to burn an iso or someone that can burn one for you?
Was the cpu 32 or 64 bit?
So I had a big system crash...XP os.
I finally gave up on the old computer and hauled it off to the bedroom. I had such a problem reloading XP and Windows updates that it simply was not worth the time.
Then I heard about this...Linux as an operating system. Hmmmmm....I went to the site http://www.linux.org/info/wanttouse.html and read every page.
I did see another post regarding fear....so I am going to download the program onto cd....and try it out. I don't use the computer for gaming or anything other than Word and internet. I see that OpenOffice works with the Linux system....
My question is...... is there a way to tell which version or what I should specifically be looking for when trying Linux?
Any help would be appreciated.
