Now there is a _really_ brave person! :)

Your first stop should be the Linux Documentation Project at
http://www.linuxdoc.org and go straight to the Laptop-HOWTO.

As for downloading Linux, unless you have a high-speed modem and a CD
burner, it is far more economical to just buy a CD, and since you are
new to Linux, I highly recommend either the Corel or the Mandrake/MCP
distributions.  Both are widely available in bookstores and computer
software shops.

There is no shortage of Linux help sites, IRC help, newsgroups and
local user groups, and a great many books on the subject.  You can
also find many links to beginner (and advanced) resources at
