	Well, even going with a more recent RH would be an improvement.  I'm hesitant 
to point existing RH users to something other than that unless they really 
have no other systems to worry about(common setups, etc), but assuming that's 
not the case, I'm a big SUSE fan.  Easiest to install that I've seen.  Peter 
mentions Ubuntu - that's another very fast-growing distro that's acquired a 
lot of good word-of-mouth recently.  Must check it out, sometime, although 
we're all SUSE 10 here and I'm loathe to mix unless I have to.

	RH Fedora Core(I think FC3 is most stable recent, although not sure about 
FC4) is certainly fine, but I went through years of hacking RH to get it to 
do what I wanted.  Nothing much seems to have changed - much of the install 
scripts still have annoying gotchas, I still read about things that need 
manual hacking that I remember doing years ago.  SUSE was an incredibly 
refreshing change.  It just works.  Huge software bundle.
