SLACKWARE, REDHAT, or BSD for my Win95 Machine?

Which one of these Linux type software is best for my Win95 system: Redhat, Slackware, or BSD?  I am looking for the best type of linux software that will give me ALL of the network commands and options such as the ability to create raw sockets (SOCK_RAW), netstat, routing look-up, etc. Essentially the right package that will give me the ability to create ANY type of program that can take advantage of all types of inter-networking capabilities (in c, perl,etc) that may exist.

They can do all those that you mentioned..  But personally I think Red Hat and Slackware is more popular then BSD... and Red Hat is more user friendly in X....

I think Slackware 3.5. It will let you install on a fat32 partion  removing the need to partion your harddisk.
