Hy. I am a noob but familiar with microsoft and now a happy fedora-linux addict for one year now. As I am and are ferry eager to learn howto.. about whats ever to know about building,maniging, and repairing Desktops, laptops, servers, routers, phones(android) etc. (hobby running out of hand and liking it getting serious) Seems to me that the best start is to get familiar with linuxcomputers (because thats my current favorite) in depth and i found a nice tutorial now for basic understanding and managing. Running that now. Next step is harware understanding: starting with filesystems and the storagedevices (hardisc for excample) . For practice I sometimes help vriends with their problems as far I can. Now I need to save (if possible) an windows xp system for a friend. Here for i need ,if possible a bootable, datarecovery/repair peace of software/distro to practice with. (not to easy not to difficult) I have looked and found at places like Softpedia and sourceforge but there is to much to pick from. So my question is : Can somebody help my out here and give me some direction and tips???
