You might also want to check out a live version of Linux

Alot of live Distros let you install after you have them booted (if you want to).

Just recently have I moved into the world of using Gentoo, and I am a pretty seasoned vet at Unix/BSD/Solaris/Linux systems. I would not advise it.

Also you might want to try not just Ubuntu, but KUbuntu, seeing as the KDE+ interface seems to be easier to learn for newbs. Personally I would recommend you go out and buy O`Reilly's Running Linux, and read it cover to cover, so you understand Linux as an OS, not just as a different GUI with a interesting terminal (bash or ctsk).

Ubuntu, is built on Debian.... Thus what works on Debian will work on Ubuntu.

I know for a fact I have seen Asterisk boxes with digium cards running on Ubuntu... although honostly, Asterisk is pretty useless, just buy some time from a VoIP provider and do what ever you were going todo that way. It is alot easier.

Thanks, but the reason why I am going with asterisk is I want to save money and I am going to be saving at lest $10 a month on going with this instead of buying a second phone line and later on if I switch to VOIP I will be saving money by getting free incoming calls and very cheap outgoing
