Default What was the site...

that allowed you to buy a whole bunch of Linux distributions for cheap. Mandrake 9 was like $6.95+s/h and they had a whole bunch of other distros available as well.

I was thinking of purchasing Mandrake 9 but don't want to pay an exorbitant amount. Downloading the .iso files is not an option as I'm stuck on dialup.

Unless someone wants to burn the discs for me and I pay you to ship them.

Default Thanks, but

I already found the site and placed my order. $10 total, not too bad for an entire operating system. If only a certain Redmond, Wash.-based company could take a hint.

True...would be nice if they'd offer a stripped version of their OS, without the 30-days free service or manual (At the same time, it might be good to offer the service anyway, in hopes of getting users addicted...).

But, if you're like me and have DSL, or another high-speed connection, it's no problem to download and burn the CD images. Besides, there's no way I'm going to continually purchase Redhat each time it's updated.

True, but I'm not going to do anything really intense with Linux. It's going to be something to play with on my laptop. I might put Quake 3 on there for a larf, but it's going to be something to use while I'm at work. Word processing, web surfing, etc.

Here was where I bought mine. They don't have all the distros available, but they have the standard RedHat, Mandrake and Debian available. They have FreeBSD as well.
