Totally new to Linux and PCLinuxOS. The download site where I found this forum offers half a dozen different versions of the OS, with different desktops to 'suit my needs' - I watched a couple of the videos which had some nice music, which moved some windows around, but I'm none the wiser, really. Couldn't find anything else that would explain the differences, so;
I have a home network with one router, a Win XP machine connected to it via ethernet, and two other Win PCs which connect wirelessly to the router.
I also have an old Win98 PC which seems to have a fried motherboard. The plan is to refit a new mboard, install new HDDs, an ethernet network card, and see if I can hook it up to the second ethernet port on the router and have it as a file server within the network.
Does this help to point me at any particular desktop that I should use?
Thanks in advance
