  3. I thoroughly recommend Linux Mint 7 Main Edition which is built upon Ubuntu 9.04 Its easy to install and easy to use plus it comes with much of the software you are likely to need preinstalled

    You download the ISO. image of Linux Mint 7 then you need to create a Bootable LiveCD for installation

    Linux Mint 7 can also be run direct from the LiveCD from Booting up without touching your Hard Drive

  4. Ubuntu is probably the most beginner-friendly free Linux distribution available, thanks to the Gnome desktop environment. Visit to download the .ISO image of the installation disc. You will need a tool capable of writing the .ISO to a disc, as this ability is not native to Windows XP. Optionally you can buy a CD from their website.

    The installation procedure is pretty nice, as you have the option of either replacing XP or configuring your system to dual-boot. You also have the option to load Ubuntu directly from the CD without making any changes to your system, allowing you to test it out before you commit to an installation.
