    This is probably going to make a few of you laugh but i have definatley lost touch with linux so here goes. I just found my linux bible, i'ts massive and it has red hat linux 3rd edition. Going through it briefly i can see it's talking about pentium computers ( LOL )....more importantly, i THINK it was designed for 32 bit systems. My question has 2 parts. A) Can it be installed on a current asus laptop, provided i have allocated a virtual drive and memory and B) Is it worth installing? or am just better off getting linux red hat 6 which people are saying is quite stable?

    A book first published 11 years ago? Get Fedora and look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Project_Wiki

    Red Hat Linux 3? It is too old. After that, Red Hat Linux reached 9 and RHEL and Fedora were born. RHEL goes to 6 and Fedora goes to 20 now.

    As arochester suggested, get Fedora 19 or 20, and check the Fedora doc on Fedora website.

    CentOS 6 may be another choice if you want a more "stable" release.
