i got a free computer and it has a distro of ark linux h2o that is so old that it is no use to me. i was going to install dsl from a disk but cant figure it out. i tried to boot from the cd rom but i dont know how to do that on a linux system. i tried to load from the cd and hundreds of widows popped up. i'd like to wipe the hard drive and start over but also dont know how to do that. never used linux before but i like the mission and freedom of open source software.
