I'm eager to finally install a Linux distro on my desktop permanently

First I would try it some times. There's a "VirtualBox disk image of Kubuntu 11.04 i386 Desktop, stable version" on
http://min.us/mX2I0UnLl
to conduct experiments on it.

About it there is a README.txt on https://i.minus.com/1337778127/eeGARp8m1AmKNLNAgSSWjA/drL47umKRwqLn....

If you have any doubt, on this thread you can make questions.
