Your best bet is to get your feet wet playing with Linux and asking questions in the Alt.OS Abode folder. There are a few of us around that know Linux pretty well and would be glad to help you out.
Thank you for your reply. Any suggestions as to what Linux distro I should try first (shall check out the Alt.OS Abode folder as suggested also).
Thank you for your feedback, really great to hear that there are people out there willing to help.
Have a good day.
Welcome to the Forum
We are in the middle of migration.
I would suggest looking into knoppix - however, mine is not the best opinion on the subject. So post this question in the Alt.OS folder. If you don't get any replies soon (a few days), consider the sister forum (The Commport at Delphi Forums).
I look forward to you post in the Alt.OS folder
