Sorry I have to ask… But if you do not know anything about computers as you
said, why do you want to install Idris?

Installing Linux (the mainstream distributions at least) is not different
from installing windows… Insert CD, select language, select username, wait,
be happy…

I really do not want to hurt your feelings, but why are you wading through
these things you do not understand? Can't you try something else which is
just slightly out of your comfort zone? Or find someone in your area
guiding you through everything?
