Any Linux-Distribution is good for Pd. For Linux audio in general,
you might want to head over to the linux-audio-user list (when the
current flame war over there has lost momentum), which is generally a
nice place to get help regarding general linux questions. 

For a distribution that's easy to set up and includes nice Pd
packages, I can recommend Agnula/Demudi.
