Linux Coming from a background of using MS-DOS for about 4 or 5 years exclusively (MS-Dos 4.1 or something) Being new to Linux and *nix in general I thought that I would want to learn from the "ground up". I did not want the bloat of Redhat or Mandrake but wanted something simple where I could learn the "stuff" of the OS.

Complaining about 'bloat' and then ditching FBSD for the lack of Linuxconf, which is the most 'bloated' system management suite available. And if you'd ever used the ports system for a while, you'd have experienced that it eats up disk space for breakfast, lunch and dinner, if not maintained carefully.

BTW, last time I checked the minimum installation of Mandrake was something about 90 MB.
