Linux Question

I am looking for a version of Linux that will fit on a CD for installation. The PC I want install it on does not have a DVD drive nor it is it bootable from the USB port. Any suggestions?

I cant recommend any version other than the Ubuntu 12.04 that is known to fit on a single CD. I never got into Ubuntu. I always liked playing around with Red Hat but that's ancient now. you're best off going with whatever is the most current and can still meet your size requirement. That way, the geeks will want to help you because you are using something they use too

Will have to try one of these. I found a CD with Ubuntu 8.04 and installed it. It came with Firefox 3.something. I tried to upgrade the Ubuntu and kept getting errors about checking my connection. When I tried to update the Firefox the upgrade button was grayed out. I am a noob at this Linux stuff just trying to get something that works well.

For somebody that's completely new to Linux, I would suggest Mint.

Completely agree. I run Linux Mint on an old laptop. It's extremely easy to install and it has a very Windows-like look and feel.

I managed to put Mint with Mate of the PC. Pretty slow due to the hardware limitations. It is definitely not like Windows in file names etc. Try to get my bearings with this crazy crap.

If you could provide a bit more info on the specs of the PC it might help us suggest a better distro
