Hi confuzd,welcome to BC.
Yes we do answer these "things" :thumbsup:
linuxiso.org is a good starting point for iso images.Which distro are you downloading?

Another good link is:
Isozone

Mandrake,Fedora and RedHat are in english as well as a few others.

isozone may be blocking you...try this:

http://linuxiso.org/download.php/464/shrike-i386-disc1.iso <--Redhat9 disk1
http://linuxiso.org/download.php/465/shrike-i386-disc2.iso <--Redhat9 disk2
http://linuxiso.org/download.php/466/shrike-i386-disc3.iso <--Redhat9 disk3

These should not be in German.

Well I guess you can call me "confuzd" now :flowers:
I have no idea how these ISO's are turning German.Where are you located? Maybe it has something to do with where you are.


here's the english version of Mandrake:
http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/ftp.php3#10.1c

Failing all that you can go to http://linuxcd.org and buy linux cd's for about 6-10 bucks.

Sorry I can't be more help. :thumbsup:
