Always wondered about Linux since like 2002. I am having a hard time down loading it...always get spam or buy this or buy that. I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 I just bought and I'd like to install Linux on it. Can I install Linux on it with no other operating system already on the hard drive? I'm so lost....I shouldn't be...I have been farting around with computers since 1988. I see disks for sale on Ebay but I hate to spend money if I can just download it myself. Does anyone on this forum live in Lagrange GA that can help me out?
