    Re:which version to use

    Well, I'd say the newest version, RedHat 9 I think. You can get a copy with anyone of many nice beginners' books.

    Re:which version to use

    I would recomend against RedHat 9. With RH dropping erata support in only a couple months it wouldn't seem like a wise option. If you're acustomed to RedHat, your best bet is Fedora Core 1.

    Don't be fooled by the name, Fedora Core is the same thing as RedHat Linux. It's a "community" driven distribution, which means RH can dictate what to or not to include, develops Fedora Core nearly e ntirely on it's own (at least as far as I can see.) The community maintains the Fedora Extra's repository (which isn't used on a default install anyway), Fedora Legacy, and does testing on beta releases..

    So, a Fedora Core system is just like RHL, contains all the stuff you're used to from RHL, and if it didn't have a different name you'd think it was RHL.

    I must ask, why the insistence upon RedHat and not Fedora?

    Re:which version to use

    I heard Fedora is very buggy. Plus Fedora 2 is coming out soon with the 2.6.1 kernel. KDE 3.2 too? Not sure about KDE 3.2

    People have been saying the same about RH for years.. and RH says about Fedora as "Fedora Core is intended to be a logical upgrade path for previous users of Red Hat Linux whose needs are consistent with the objectives of the Fedora Project." ( http://fedora.redhat.com/about/ )
