I'll have to use a laptop of mines to install the server edtion on and learn all the commands before i implace the server edtion to full use.

I am starting to like it alot. Very usefull and its starting to get easy using the OS... the only problem i am having is pushing a static IP in the OS. It won't let me. Not sure why... would anyone shine some light on the problem?
OMG... I hope you have a back up...

Btw, what are you going to use the Ubuntu primarily for? If it's a server, I can (somewhat) guide you through. Most of the time, you won't see the CLI... I prefer OpenSUSE, though... (I still love YaST to death, can't beat it for fast administration).

I'll have to download a newer copy of OpenSuse and give it a try again. I've tried it in the past, and just haven't really been compelled to keep using it.
