    Good luck, buddy! If I were you I'd boot to the live desktop (via a live CD/DVD/usb install) so that you can use a web browser and the screen shot function (just the print screen button on your keyboard) while you do the install in case you have any questions.

    You probably won't have any questions. Installing an OS is something that sounds scary, but really isn't. All of the linux distros I've used have had very simple, straight forward installs.

    I hope you're excited; you're jumping feet first into a whole new level of fun through tinkering. I always feel like I've accomplished something when I've fixed a problem with linux or gotten a new piece of hardware to work correctly (although you'll find nearly everything is plug and play or has a driver you can download for it).

    Anyways, good luck! What distro are you installing?
