I would say redhat might be a little easier to load and use. If you are a beginer start with redhat. Yes you can use your generic ide cdrom. Happy linuxing! Welcome to the club! :-)!!!

Sorry to be severl months late in answering. I just didn't see the comment. No there is no difference in power, and I would think you would have to reformat the partion.
