    There is a pot full of ng's for Linux. Can any of you Linux users recommend
    one for me?

    I got a boot, system check and then ascending blue lines until a ctrl, alt,
    esc stopped it. Then a, what I assume, is their carrot. I remembered
    somewhere man man, typed that and got the manual and never got out of it. I
    found no demos or programs of any kind. Exit, quit, escape, gotohell,
    nothing worked.

    This ng was recommended. Anyone have a clue from the above what is wrong?

    When in doubt, use
    http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search
    knoppix in the first box, pick english language,
    to see where the most responses are.
     

    Just blue lines or did they have text.

    On my knoppix ver 2.2 cd, I get a pretty screen, a boot prompt, with a text
    line telling me to hit F2 for arguments to boot.
     

    Yep, that aborted whatever was happing and dropped you to the console
    prompt.
     

    That fired up the maunal reading program _man_, 1'st man, and you
    indicated you wanted to read up on how to use the _man_, 2'nd man,
    program.
     

    Usually entering a q will get you out of the paging program,
    called by man, while reading a MANual page.
     

    Well if it can detect your vidio hardware, knoppix will launch a gui
    desktoop which any usere should be able to use.
     

    linux/unix is case sensitive so, exit, will logout of a
    terminal/shell if you are in one. Since you aborted what was running
    and was dropped to a system prompt, I would guess shutdown -h now
    would shutdown linux.
     

    Please read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    Without knowing what hardware you are running on, version of cd,
    _exactly_ what you entered, and _exactly_ what messages are printed
    out, I do not have a clue.

    Hey, that's OK. I thought I would try Linux. Believe me, I don't need it.
    Didn't work anyway.

    This just confirms my suspicion that all Linux users are self-centered and
    arrogant.

    My XP pro works just fine and I'll muddle along with Billy Gates.
