Gotta ditto that Peter - Mandrake appears to be much nicer and easier to use
than RedHat. The install is a piece of piddle, and I just think they made a
bit more of an effort with tweaking the GUI. One thing that really got me was
that all partitions are automatically mounted at boot, and icons for each are
added to the desktop. It's a little thing, but it's the little things that
 I can't say that definitively, because I haven't had a chance to work in
Linux locally of late.
 RedHat 6.2 that is - I haven't tried 7 yet.
 God, I'm alliterative today.
