I want to try an RPM distro. I've been using mainly DEB distros but I'm thinking of see how the other distros do it. I was thinking of CentOS but it's 4 cd. I only have 10gigs and I want room for mp3s.

Rules:

1 cd distro
uses RPM
Is easy to get started with.

Thanks

network install... Ie, you just need to download one disc, and you can enter in a website that lets you download it and install it at the same time.

SuSE has a good one with YaST, except that the mirrors are usually slow as hell.

I had a good experience doing it with fedora, by the way. Was fast, almost as fast as installing from a CD. But, I didn't like the actual OS =P

Blag (http://www.blagblagblag.org/)

Based on Fedora, but only has one installation cd. Uses apt for rpm with Synaptic as a front-end. Ubuntu users should feel right at home.

I second BLAG.

Great 1 cd fedora based distro with a strong free software philosophy

I'm not thinking of Mandriva One. It look like a good distro. I'm going to try it. Thanks.
