    Take a look and take you pick of what actually suits your needs.

    I am not going to suggest a particular one, as that is going to be down to personal preference, what you want it for and your level of experience. But seeing as you are asking this question, you are most certainly new to linux, so you will probably be best starting with something like .

    Normally the homepage for the linux distro is generally going to have a working download site. I would try unbuntu as my friend BP suggested.

    After you get it going search the unbuntu forums for all your questions. Unbuntu is a linux distro that has a huge support network. it is very easy to use and makes the transition from windows to linux much easier. If in a year or so you feel inclined to learn some security and pentesting then maybe you can come back to us here at the remote exploit forums. Home of "Backtrack". I guess we can close this thread now.

    thanks for all those great links !
    slackware is excellent for learning purposes,
    and the 'library' links pasted in this thread, are a must have.

    cheers to all the hard workers.

    I'm a little curious, did your two week linux-from-scratch info session provide you the capabilities to utilize BT2 to it's full potential? That's the fastest learning curve I've ever seen if it did.
