Okay, Dale,  here goes...

    The CD's themselves are available reasonably here:;;147

    As to what each one is like <fear and trepidation>, RedHat and Suse 
are the most commercial,
Debian is the Free-est (speech AND beer)and gives you a better package 
manager (they say), Mandrake gives you LOTS of apps,  the others are 
less well-known but each has its speciality(s).
Perhaps go to a bookstore or library and read up on it/them; get used to 
the idea of researching topics, 'cause you'll be doing a lot of it. This 
is NOT like Windows; you're expected to hold your own hand...</fear and 
    If you DO get involved, however, I can testify that you'll learn A 
LOT and enjoy it A BUNCH!!!
