I can only second Timothy's support for Debian....it is a
wonderful distribution that is far easier to use in most
every way than RedHat.  And for all those that tout the
benefits of other package management systems than apt-get, I
can only guess they haven't tried apt-get as I have yet to
find a single comparison (objective or otherwise) that could
truthfully say there is a better package mangement system
than apt-get.
