I would suggest kanotix, it's what i use.
Stay away from linspire though, It's terrible.

ubuntu is pretty easy. so is debian. many people recommend for beginners fedora core 4 and suse 10.

i personaly use debian due to the ease of managing apps on it.

I have a friend who is playing with mandreva and says they've made a lot of improvements in speed and ease of install.

If you have the time and knowledge to install, however... go gentoo.

mandrIva has improved in its more recent versions. it's the first distro i've found where i haven't yet encountered a dependancy problem while installing software (the 2006.0 x86_64 free version). the most recent version of firefox prepackaged available is 1.0.6 but you can download the tar from mozilla.
iHATEgentoo :( it hates me too. *nods*

Fedora Core 5 is supposed to be released March 15, i'd wait for that and install it. although waiting like, another week may be a good idea as there is pretty much definitely going to be a lot of bug fixes after the general release. *shrug* i tried FC5 test 2 and it was looking quite nice..
i'd also suggest trying out suse.

i recommend gentoo for the fact that it makes you actualy learn linux related things to install it. i found it quite fun. now if its your first distro stay away from gentoo for a good while. in which case you would be better off with mandriva or wait for fedora 5.
