Hi everyone, I want to install some version of Linux on my PowerBook. i know basically nothing about Linux, so i'll probably need massive amounts of help. i've just installed Panther on my PB, and i've got a seperate 3GB partition to install Linux on. 3GB should be enough right? so all i need to know is what distro of Linux should i use? i want to learn a bit of the commands, but i don't want to have to learn thousands of commands. i don't mind sitting down for a while and reading a guide of how to install, so ease of installation isn't really high on my priority list. after all, command line stuff is all part of the Linux experience, right? well, that's what i want to experience. i searched the forums and only came up with this thread. someone there mentions not to use any of the pre-packaged OS's, but to compile the code specifically for your computer for best performance. would that be very difficult to do? if there's a good guide out there on the net that would be OK, otherwise i'll pass... it would also be good if i could access all the other partitions on my PB. i've got 4 in total. would it be possible to do this with Linux? okay, so recommend what you think would be the best distro of Linux for my needs. i hope i've made sense, otherwise just ask for clarification. thanks in advance for any help. edit> i just found this thread about someone asking questions about linux/unix. fraeone said it wasn't a good idea to put linux on a PB yet because of a couple of big issues: they don't seem to be all that big an issue, i can do without Airport and i can just use my PB on the poweradapter if necessary. one last question: is it completely stupid of me to even think about compiling everything, considering i'm a complete Linux n00b?
