  Hi Marie-Noëlle

Best luck for the switch over,but before that,I humbly request you to 
test PCLinuxoS2010-KDE in virtual box or with a live CD.It is a rolling 
distro giving latest applications. You need not install every after 6 
months,though necessary after @ 3 years approximately.
We (PCLinuxoS users) got Digikam 1.5 on the date of it's release,see at
http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,80953.0.html
No distro is 100% perfect/stable but I prefer PCLinuxoS over bleeding 
edge Fedora.Moreover I need not install every after 6 months and can use 
my time & energy in getting acquainted with applications, mastering them 
to the extent possible  and getting some output!
Regarding /"as I will have two different computers with the same 
distribution, can I move my images and database to an external drive so 
I can use it with either computer?"......../pl. go through the tips at
http://digikam.1695700.n4.nabble.com/Transferring-image-files-and-database-to-new-hard-drive-tp2400948p2400948.html
  There  ' Andreas Tono' mentions that " /   Think about the timestamps 
for each file in the filesystem.
If digikam keeeps that also in the database you may get a problem." /
'Lucky Backup' has nice GUI,is fast & is based upon 'rsync'.....this may 
help you.
Pl. request ' Darren Kirby 
<http://digikam.1695700.n4.nabble.com/template/TplServlet.jtp?tpl=user_nodes&user=143279> 
'     for  his experience reg the data transfer to new hard disk at the 
above mentioned post/link.     His feed backs will help many others.

Regards. /
