I saw Mandrake and SUSE but also saw Ubuntu.  I know there are lots of

If you are talking about switching to Linux, the question for you Chris
Templeton is what your background is.  I am guessing that you are a new
simple end user, in which case I would recommend that you consider looking
at PClinuxOS, as it is what we are using for middle school students at one
particular public middle school in San Francisco on stand alone work
station.  We are also using Ubuntu, but IMHO PClinuxOS is more simple for
end users.
