I definitely agree with Nikhil.
There has been tremendous speed improvements with my PIII machine.Till now i have been
using Redhat and Fedora.
BUt gentoo has impressed me a lot as it allows me to upgrade and resolves dependencies
while getting the flab out of the packages.I took approx 3-days of R&D to get it
working (compiling and installing and doing r&d).
That was becoz of my ignorance of config files.
BUt finally it worked and I am impressed with the responsive ness of applications.and i
am having 3.2.2KDe and 2.6 Gnome.
Cheers to GENTOO...
I too would like to try Gentoo,but is it so that gentoo need
internet connection to be installed through net.Or is it installable
through the 1st boot cd and the pentium4 packages cd.
Any gentoo gurus please guide.

From the Yoper FAQ:
"Yoper fills the gap between the guru-only Gentoo or Linux from scratch
OS's, and Linux distros used by businesses or home users, that still want
the best possible desktop."
Well I use Gentoo and frankly I am not a Guru. Gentoo is IMHO the "best"
source-based Linux distribution. It gives you the power of installing
either binary packages or source based "portages". The major advantage is
that you can install portages so that you have applications that are
tailor-made for your CPU: Why install i386/i586/i686 rpm's when you have
Pentium 4 or Athlon XP ?
Needless to say if you have a P4 or XP processor you get a
Gentoo is closest that Linux gets to the supposedly venerable FreeBSD. Do
tell us your experiences with Yoper...
