Linux Distro


For my networking class, I would like to present to the students a distro of Linux that is similar to what PCBSD is to FreeBSD.  I need something user friendly and easy to install.  Also a free or trial version if possible.  I know thats alot to ask but I'm hoping you Linux guru's can help me out.  Even if it's not a Linux distro just an easy OS to setup.

Thank you

Ubuntu installs off a single CD, easy to setup, and is one of the most popular Linux distros

They even have a "Live CD" version that boots from CD-ROM similar to Knoppix.
most of the mainstream distros are pretty easy to install.

Personally, I like SuSe (www.opensuse.org) - which is available as a free open-source version as well as a "pay" version. It's on 5 CDs or one DVD - so the single CD part about ubuntu may make you choose that. - But depending on what you are teaching, you may want to show that there are alternatives, and compare and contrast different distros for your students.

www.freesco.org ?? firewall/router on floppy. or use centos, easy to setup and understand
