I need help'n'guidance.
I searched many a distro. Liked Mageia, Pinguy, UE, loved full monty's organized style, but openbox may be better for my laptop w/2GB & 80GB HD. Purchased used w/Mint 9 on it. It has passwords for sudo and admin and refuses to chge timezones, very stubborn and I am very dumb w/Linux at this point.
I'd like to completely start from scratch, partition my drive for say 4 distros, download ywriter5 and be able to actually open it, and start writing already and for fun, learn and try out a couple of distros while keeping openbox as the heart of my laptop. Now my Terminal seems terminally stubborn. How do I do this and is there a point and click way of running prgms like ywriter5? If this distro uses norton commander I may actually be able to get going quicker. I used dos and windows back when norton was king. Any and all help will be cherished and used.
Thanks in advance. I am finding that linux is where all the best people have been hiding. Helpful, wonderful, awesome, smart, and cool. I am loving it!
