You mean the bin DVD. Thing is with the DVD they are big for broadband
download. I think i'd buy one. But i appreciate your advice.

One thing i did learn with linux when i first started is that it's
essential to have a spare PC to test a distro on first - then one can
use the main PC to email on if in trouble! I'll explore and test
things out over the next few days. I had a good look at many distros 3
years ago and the only one's i liked were *buntu family and Centos.
