The question is, which is better Mandriva 2005 or Linux 7.2 for this purpose and easier to mess around with. The plan is to have a LAMP server and a KDE interface, etc. I have install CDs for both products.
I am afraid to try FEDORA, so I have not even considered. The other version would be SuSe or Debian, but I am not sure I want to pay Novell prices for SuSe 9.3.
Advice is welcome on all, but mostly linux 7.2 and Mandriva. Also, is it still possible to update Linux 7.2 with the RPMs.
