BillyS, I was in the same boat about a decade ago. Tried Suse and Redhat. They both worked to varying levels of success but I never quite managed to get things working exactly as I wanted. I think A lot of people who experimented "back in the day" will still be cautious due to past experiences, but things have sure changed a lot.
I remember spending days trying to get my Suse 8.0 install to connect through a dial up modem.
