I agree with Ben's recomendation. Those five distros all have good
strong community support. While support for other distros may not
eactly be lacking, you are more likely to find specific HOWTO
documentation targeted at those more popular distros.

I would lean towards Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora if you are looking for
a system that just works. I am a Debian and Ubuntu user. (Ben didn't
mention it but he is a Debian developer.)
