    I've been playing with Knoppix STD and I think it's better then redhat 9. I can play all my MP3's on my win 98SE partition. I really like Knoppix is so user friendly and I like the interface better then bluecurve. Its also uses a KDE GUI instead of Gnome which I like better.

    Redhat 9 comes with both gnome (bluecurve) and kde.

    How do I switch between the two? Is it simple?

    At the graphical login screen you can choose. You can also set the default.

    [edit]Also, about playing the mp3 on xmms. Does Knoppix automount the fat32 parition. I know in redhat you can use the automount config or you can do it manually by typing "mount -t vfat /dev/hda? /mnt/windows" where '?' is the parition number. and if you want it to mount it at startup you add the line to fstab
