One Too Many Viruses: Converting a Non-Geek to Linux, Part 1

I got a call from a friend the other day asking, "What would it take to get me a Linux box?" I could hear the frustration in her voice. This wasn't
the first time she experienced computer problems. Word-based viruses run rampant on college campuses, and being on a student's budget, she can't
afford the top-of-the-line AV software. On this day, it seemed that another virus had snuck past the freeware she had loaded.
