Pick one and try it, is the best way.

The most commonly used versions I think are Mandrake and Redhat, BSD, Suse, etc...

I belive that it is mostly by trial and error until you find one you like. Most are either free on the internet or you can buy them for around $35 at a bookstore or online.

Here is on you can download and burn with Nero or or CD Mate. Both of which are free downloads. Do a google search for each.


here is a search of this site for download postings.
