I am thinking of installing linux on a 2nd hard drive on my computer because i want try using it but i also want to install php on a linux system.

Do any particular distributions of linux have any advantages/disadvantages for installed php etc on them? I understand some of them come with it pre installed?

As far as I know, all Linux distro's handle Apache and PHP the same.
I'm not sure which distro's come with PHP preinstalled.

if you want to learn linux and want something easy, i'd suggest Ubuntu purely because you're new to Linux. But if you know Linux, you might get bored with it.

well then i think Ubuntu is for you.

there are other beginner distro's as well but what stands out the most about Ubuntu is it's hardware support.
so, as a beginner, you won't spend hours scratching your head wondering how you can configure your hardware.
