How small is small? and how much of a learning curve are you willing to deal with? Gentoo isn't the smallest, but it should occupy no more space than your Win2k install did, it has a graphical installer, and behaves fairly similarly to a windows installer.
Look around on distrowatch.com at the different live cd versions, and give a few a try. I wouldn't reccomend Ubunut or any of the Ubuntu family because (in my opinion) it limits your ability to have full administrative control of the OS.
How can I install Puppy Linux permanently into my harddrive?It seems that LIVECD has alwas have to be inserted just to use LINUX.And why was it saying at the bottom of the screen that I only have 6.3RAM?And why was it not visible in the OS choices only winxp and win2000 i could see?Is it because it wont reside perfectly in 128 RAm drive?
Lastly, I want to learn linux command, which of the applications that comes in puppy should I open?Thanks
