In addition to what others have posted; if you are new to linux I
_strongly_ recommend that you install the 8.04 (hardy) server version
instead of 8.10 (intrepid) to test. 8.10 is still very new and quite
frankly, it is still very much in the debug stage. 8.04 is a _stable_
LTS (Long Term Support) release; meaning that many of the bugs have been
worked out and and will be supported for quite some time.
Example - the Hardy (8.04) releases will be supported until:
April 2011 (Desktop)
April 2013 (Server)
and 8.10 will reach EOL April 2010.
