Linux works with pretty much all kit nowadays. If you want to satisfy yourself before you take the plunge then try one of the live CD's.

These CD's allow you to run a full Linux distribution from CD without installing it on your hard drive. You will need to make sure that your BIOS allows you to boot from the CD/DVD drive. This way you will be able to see what Linux can do without actually doing anything to your HD.

If you go to click here you can download their live CD (which is really a DVD becuase it won't fit on a CD) or you can go to click here which will fit on a CD.

Welcome to Linux and have a lot of fun!

As Pusherman suggests try a 'live CD' first. If you like the look of Linux and it works fine on your P/C - maybe look to set up a dual boot P/C. This works by having both Windows and Linux on your P/C and when you start up your system you just choose which one that you want to boot with.

After running Linux for a few weeks some people think 'what the hell was I doing using Windows' while others can't wait to get Linux off their P/C and get back to Windows.....

I still can't get Suse 9.2 to find or recognise any modem, despite using a serial-port external, as recommended.
