Install Linux on a newly built computer, no OS?
My son just built a computer for a school project. He purchased all the parts and assembled everything. Now he needs an OS and wants to use Linux. He is a bit lost, never built anything from scratch and has no idea what is involved. If anyone can walk us through what to know/do it would be a huge help!!
