Hi,
Try initially with Red Hat.

When you are a more experienced user, you can try with debian.

Linux?. Yes, of course.

Re: installing linux on workstation

Check at http://www.xfree86.org/current/Status.html
if your card is supported.
Then, try with a Mandrake or Red Hat
for hardware detection. If they can detect and configure it, check the file /etc/X11/XF86Config (in Mandrake, for instance), because you can need that info for antoher distro that does not detect it.
(Sorry too for bad english)

Best regards.
