I can't give you the answer, which distribution to install, only which not
to install: With my Toshiba laptop (Satellite 1800) Debian was really a pain
to install. Debian is also not the best choice for beginners, still it has
some special advantages, so maybe later you will want to use it...

with it, i decided to install Linux to use PD with pdp/pidip and other
externals and because i really want ot try Linux.
> The problem is that i never installed Linux and i'm not shure what to
install: Red Hat, Mandrake, SuSe? A friend of mine has 3 Red Hat 9 iso's, so
i probably will install that... What do you think?
> Also, i will install linux in my laptop, a Toshiba Satellite 5400-504. I
don't have any special sound card, just the one who came onboard with the
laptop. Hope it works and i can get any sound...
