If I were in the UK, I'd take you up on your kind offer. I'm in America (the real one, not the one you hear so much about in the news lately). I have Barbara 2.0 but plan to download Bea 2.1 on my friend's broadband connection. I will figure out how to burn a good .iso of that distro and try it as a live CD first.
I have a lot to learn about Linux. Linux Mint sounds great- just what is needed for a newcomer. I am fairly geeky, but only in a Windows environment. I need a CDR burning tool, therefore, to produce my .iso in Windows.
BTW, Win98SE can see my 'bad' .iso of Barbara 2.0 and reports the file size as 711.538.688 bytes. Will this distro truly fit on a '700M' size CDR?
How about this. I'm a former Brit and I live in Texas. Maybe I can help bridge the gap?
I have read that you should use a 'Read' disk, as opposed to RW, for ISO files and also do it on a slow speed.
Don't ask me how I found out about this.
