I would recommend looking at Libranet or Ubuntu. They both have 64-bit versions available. Libranet is especially easy to administer. You would need to download the Libranet 2.81 cd. If you have SATA they have a special iso to start the install. Both Libranet and Ubuntu are debian based, so upgrades and package installs are painless. Ubuntu will even mail you free cd's (32-bit version) if you go to their web site, or download and burn the 64-bit install or the 64-bit live cd.
look at Libranet version 2.81 or Ubuntu 4.10. Newer versions of each are in beta.
NLD is still a little too bleeding edge for Grandma. It looks like it will be a great no-nonsense distro for the business desktop when it gets a little more polish

I have two questions, if anyone can assist, on Novell Linux Desktop (NLD). Am weary of fixing my mother-in-law's Windows machine.
- is NLD 64-bit? not that she has a 64-bit computer,
but would like to set up an emulator here.
- Will NLD, on install, allow the Windows she has to
stay on the drive, the way SuSE 9.2 does (with GRUB allowing dual boot), or does NLD simply replace the installed Microscheiss software?
If there is another list to which I need to address this, pls send. I have read the documentation on line and find answer to neither question.
