Let's face it...I'm a noob when it comes to Linux. What distro do you think would be best for me and MOST hardware compatible? Here's my system specs: ASUS P4P800 Deluxe P4 3ghz Northwood C 1x Segate SATA 250 gig barracuda 3x WD 8mb LE IDE 80 gig ASUS 52x cdwriter Starlogic 32x Dvdrom Linksys Wireless card (not sure which version but its 1 year old) Soundmax integrated digital audio Nvidia Geforce 5200 LE I'm not sure which ones compatible/not compatible. Would burning the distro as a live cd and booting up tell me what hardware is compatible etc? If so...does each distro have a live cd version or is the distro itself can be used as a live cd?
