I would recommend installing Linux Mint LXDE, Cinnamon or KDE, which is a free OS available for free download from http://linuxmint.com Cinnamon and KDE are full featured, XFCE is streamlined and slightly faster and a better choice for older computers with less memory and/or storage space. All versions come with Firefox and LibreOffice full Office Suite, capable of saving and reading files in the popular MS Office formats like .doc, .docX, .ppt and xls.

Linux comes with almost everything necessary to begin using the computer immediately after installing the OS.

To install it on a netbook or notebook computer, I'm assuming you don't have a DVD optical drive so you have to install it from a USB thumb drive. If you have a DVD optical drive, I would still recommend installing it from the USB thumb drive, ... it's more reliable and less prone to failures from trying to burn a DVD on old, dirty or out-of tolerance equipment.

First download the .iso file on another computer. If you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the 32-bit for both, or try the 64-bit - if that doesn't work, use the 32-bit.

Use a free program to create a bootable USB using the .iso file. (You can't just copy the file to the USB drive) ... I'd recommend using Active ISO Burner from NTFS.com ... here's the download link ... http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm (You should be using at least an 8 GB size thumb drive).

Once you've created the bootable USB drive from the .iso file, you should be able to insert it and start the computer and see the Linux Mint startup screen. It will come up in LIVE mode, without installing itself, so you can try it out.

If you want to install it, make sure you are connected to the Internet and have your AC power adapter plugged in.

If the computer doesn't come up with the Linux screen, you probably just need to reset your BIOS boot order so it boots from the USB driver first. Plug in the USB drive and start the computer. Look of instructions for set up or boot order, usually pressing F2 while the computer is starting. Follow the directions to move the USB to the top of the boot devices, i.e. about the hard drive. Save changes and restart the computer. It should now boot from the USB. If you have trouble doing this or burning the bootable USB, you might have a geek friend or relative that can help or do it for you.

When the LIVE mode comes up, it displays the Linux desktop with an Install icon. If you double click the Install Icon you will begin the installation process and just follow the simple prompts and create a password when prompted.

Linux never requires anti-virus and does not become infected. You can visit the main http://linuxmint.com website and download the .PDF manual if you are interested.

Your computer is probably 64-bit, but if not, there is also a 32-bit version available for download.

The image shown below is from my Acer and is Linux Mint KDE, which is also available from the same website and similar to LXDE, but more full-featured. All Google programs I know of are available for Linux, since Google uses 100% Linux. Android is Linux also.

Once you install your Linux, you'll want to run the Update Manager to get the latest updates.

On my Acer netbook I have 3 Linux OS's installed. Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit, Linux Mint KDE Cinnamon 64-bit and Linux Mint XFCE 64-bit. I select the OS I want at startup when the computer starts.

Hope this helps. Install Linux OS - bdf3eb0b-7c1d-4c93-b25d-72c3f473ae47.jpg

If You want LinuX installed, You must:

a)go to www.howtoforge.com and, in the "search" area, write "the perfect desktop"....find the article for your LinuX distribution and print It.

b)download the LinuX distribution .iso image that suits You better (I strongly reccomend UBUNTU)

c)Burn that .iso image to a CD or DVD (NERO does it better at 8X maximum speed)

d)Be sure that the PC where You want LinuX installed is able to boot from CD/DVD (chek and change your BIOS settings if necessary)

e)Boot from the CD/DVD

f)Follow the instructions

g) enjoy!

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

How to download and install apache on linux5


Hi Follow the below procedures.
How to install and start the Apache or httpd service under Linux

by Milind

Q. How do I install and start the Apache or httpd web server under Fedora core or Cent OS?

A. Apache HTTP Server is a free software/open source web server for Unix-like systems and other oses.

Apache features configurable error messages, DBMS-based authentication databases, and content negotiation. It is also supported by several graphical user interfaces (GUIs) which permit easier, more intuitive configuration of the server.

Use rpm command to install Apache under Linux. You can also use up2date or yum command to install the same.
Task: Install Apache/httpd under Fedroa Core/Cent OS Linux

Type the following command if you are using Fedora or Cent OS Linux:

# yum install httpd
Now, start the Apache/httpd
# chkconfig httpd on
# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Task: Install Apache/httpd under Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Type the following command
# up2date httpd
Start the Apache/httpd
# chkconfig httpd on
# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Task: Debian Linux httpd/Apache installation

Use apt-get command:
# apt-get install apache2
# /etc/init.d/apache2 start
Task: Verify that port 80 is open

# netstat -tulpn | grep :80

You can also install httpd from CDROM with rpm command:
# rpm -ivh httpd*
Configuration

Your server is started but you need to configure and use Apache as per your requirement. /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (RHEL/Cent OS/Fedora Core Linux) or /etc/apache2/httpd.conf (Debian / Ubuntu Linux) configuration file. Use text editor such as vi to edit file. This file is very well documented or read official Apache configuration documentation for more information.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

What programming language can i use in linux


you can use c,c++ by default no need to install the extra software like in windows ..

LINUX comes with the softwares just like office suite,programming tools,web designing tools,etc and drivers inbuilt in it ...
so once you install the LINUX you will be having almost all the required softwares inbuilt in it including music player,video player,etc

if you want you can install the extra softwares too but the softwares use in windows doesnt work with linux you must download the separate software for linux ....

linux is best in security wise because no virus will attack to LINUX as the viruses are very less developed as there are scarcity in users of linux and there is no chance of hacking the password in linux like in windows this is because of the greater security used in the linux ....

linux stores the password by making use of shadowing .. so upto this time nobody is unable to hack the password ...
