"The first step of any journey is the hardest part.
Clichéd, but true. The first step in using Linux is to
install it, and for many folks that step is the most intimidating.

install, if you know what to expect. Here's how to prep for an
install and get on with the journey.
" Linux will run on almost any standard laptop or personal
computer, and on quite a few less standard machines as well. For
the purpose of this guide, I'm only going to cover standard

processor, or another type of machine, it's probably possible to
install Linux — but it will take a bit more work and you'll
have to be choosy about the distribution you choose.

to run first? and get the ISO image for that distribution. What's
an ISO image? This is slang for a type of file that contains a DVD
or CD "image," that can be burned directly to blank CD or DVD
