Hey, I'm in the Canberra area and I've had a recent interest in linux and 
would love to try it out. I have been recommended Mandrake linux and have 
read a lot about it (feel free to recommend anything for a newbie if you 
feel its appropriate). My questions are as follows:

1) I could download mandrake from their site, although I do not have a 
burner, so I can't put it on a CD. Is there a place in Canberra I can get 
it? A burnt copy of the downloadable one prefered (as its cheap, and I'd 
like to try this out before I put too much money into it - I'm poor), but I 
may still consider the real version, depends on the pricing. Harvey Norman 
only seemed to have Red Hat linux.

2) I know I should probably ask transact this, but I'm writing this anyway, 
so I may as well ask you. I recently got transact and to connect to the 
internet it uses Enternet 300, I looked for a linux version of it and found 
that there was a command line version, but could not find a place to 
download it. If any of you have this, know any info on it, or can tell me a 
method of connecting to transact internet with linux, It would be great if 
you could share your info with me.

Thanks heaps, in advance.
