i would like to switch to linux from windows. but i feel nervous as i have never
installed linux for regular usage like playing games, surfing the internet, etc.
a constant fear lurks in the mind what if it does not detect my hardware,
how do i configure it for cable internet considering that my cable
may not know how to install internet on any other os other than windows.
please can someone clear some of my doubts and give me guidance.
thanks and regards,
Probably you can start with Knoppix. Its a live CD. you don't have to
install it. Try that out and once you are comfortable with that, you can
install any GNU/Linux distribution on your machine.
