    excellent choice. If you need any assistance feel free to PM me or better yet get me on the #remote-exploit IRC channel ( I live on it).

    I found a nice site today that may help people choose the distro that best suits them.

    Linux Distribution Chooser

    I was given the option of two, Gentoo and Slackware :)

    I was given Mandriva, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse, which is none of the ones I actually use. Fedora is about the closest one to CentOS.

    That link should be a Sticky and anyone that comes along asking about Distro's should be pointed to it.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    W00t! Gentoo up and running. After a couple of days. The largest issue I had was the gdm kept kicking me out, telling me I had only been using it for less than 10 seconds, and kick me back to the login manager. Found a few hundred posts on the forums over at Gentoo with the same issue. For me, I had no default directory assigned to my user, missing the /home. Went in, created that, deleted the .Xauthority, and bammer, in business!

    I was given Gentoo and Slackware. Ive used Slackware for a while now and it is in fact the first distro I've ever used. Haven't been brave enough to finish my Gentoo install though but I think I'll be quite happy with it.

    I decided to give gentoo a go yesterday, and after a late night, lots of coffee and 2 false starts ive finally got me a very fast system up and running.

    I decided to go with the minimal install cd. Something about installing linux without an installer just appealed to me.
