Hey Tony don't give up

I first installed Linux 10 or 15 years ago
Red Hat 5.1 (Manhattan) what a nightmare

It took 3 days to get a modem driver, compile the source and re-compile the kernel to include the new driver. It was a nightmare, but I felt on top of the world when I fired up my lynx browser on the internet!!!

THe initial learning curve is almost vertical, but when you get familiar with it, there is nothing you can't do.
In short it's worth the struggle.

Currently using openSUSE.

Good Luck Tony
