LFS isn't a dist realy. It's more like a package of documentation and some tools that you can use to build your own Linux dist. Nothing to recomend if you doesn't have a one week holiday and absolutly nothing to do. I've tried it once...i think it's one of the hardest thing you can do...if we dosn't talking about creating a totaly new kernel from with assably coding and stuff like that...

If you want to learn "how" linux works.. try slackware.
For eye candy go for suse or mandrake.

For a complete and total n00b, Lycoris all the way. Great way to transition from Windoze to Linux gradually, IMHO.

Mac Mini 1.5GHz, that might run MorphOS someday, when the fools who own it come to the realization that 30 minutes just isn't enough time to play with it enough to decide whether or not you like it enough to cough up $200.

- Someone please design SOME kind of DIY accelerator for the A4000. -
