Before choosing a GNU/Linux distribution look into the package
management issue. 
I would suggest that you avoid all RPM-based distributions (Mandrake,
Fedora, SuSE), and consider Debian (+ those based on it) & the
source-based distributions (such as Gentoo). I've been using Mandrake
for a couple of years but got tired of RPM.

Dear List,
I have acquired a new desktop and wanted to put a free OS on it.  I
am trying Fedora Core 1, but not sure what the best Linux OS is for
using R 2.0.1?

Thank you in advance for your input,
Tom Volscho
