Never even tried to use Linux before, but I might be interested in experimenting.
I have a Compaq 2596 that I thought was totally dead. Messed around with it a bit this morning, found the memory wasn't seated right. Solved that and it comes up to the splash screen. I can get to BIOS from there. Diagnostics fail with No OS Found which makes sense because I think it has a wiped drive in it for now.
So, if I wanted to try Linux, which should I go for? I'll need to put it on CD and try to boot/install from there
Then I can look further for other problems.
