    You could do worse than looking at the free documentation on the Ubuntu website. Psychocats is also a favourite of mine.

    There is loads more. If you have time on your hands - Google

    Hey thanks for the advice man...but do you mean 8.04 LTS with the new 4.1 KDE or the one with the old KDE? Or is there a new distro since the 8.04 release?

    -thanks

    Re: The Experienced Beginner

    I'd stick with 8.04 for now. The 8.1 version due out 30/10/08 is still beta and can break. Ibex

    This next link should keep you busy for a bit.
