Ark Linux 2005.2 is good.Good hardware support, good package selection, only one CD is really essential (the 3 other CDs are optional), the installer is easy for windows-converts....Its got only two problems though:1. The Installer is not able to make use of USB mice, so you need to use a PS/2 mouse atleast till u finish installing it.2. The partitioning tool (QTparted, in this distro) is buggy - you better do the partitioning with partition-magic or some such tool, & just directly do the mount-points & formatting alone, during Ark setup.Its day-to-day usage is impeccable (no sudden problems), & visually appealing to the windows user as well.
