I am a total newbie to Linux. I want to install Linux on an old Packard Bell wth of 224 MB memory with a Celeron processor to try Linux out.
My primary reason for wanting linux is that I have a Maxtor external storage device with two disk drives that failed. I been told that the only way to recover the data is to mount the disks from a linux partition and attemt to recover the stripe sets.
Will you please help me by telling me what I should do? I went to the link you posted, read the blurb about why Linux is better than Windows and then ended up in a page where it gives lots of different versions of Linux - What would be the best one to install if I dont want to spend any money and the main reason forme wanitn linux is to recover my data.
Ok if I like it I will follow your lead and consider switching at least on machine to Linux.
