first, go here for some inspiration : http://funda.ment.org/THELIGHT/

some ppl prefer redhat to start with.  I would recomend this as well.
pretty easy to install.  I even have my father using it now.  
don't go with mandrake or suse.  with redhat, just pop in the cd's and
click thru the install process.

if you are a bit daring, than try out debian or gentoo <gentoo.org>
with both of those, you will probably be spending more time than you want
configuring the machine.  

best -august.
