    can you give me a recommendation of which version of Linux is good? I went to the Linux site and it gives me so much version @_@

    the only thing I want from Linux is to have a CD that boot into Linux just in case my windows xp computer is infected with viruses/something like that and cannot boot into windows.

    uhh... Knoppix is another choice.
    Defiantly not lightweight, but has enough that is all inclusive for you to easily pick it up, use it as your normal apps in emergency (firefox, thunderbird, OpenOffice, fax stuff I'm sure... uhh... you know the normal stuff), as well as perform repairs and emergency maintainance (with NTFS-3g) on your windows partitions.

    No problem.
    And I made this it's own thread because I didn't think it fit too well in the other one... and it makes it easier when other people search for a similar question (at least they better be searching).
