out of the distros listed, suse would be my top.  a great starter distro, it was my first and i had a good experence with it.  debian also has to be at the top of my list.  although there was just something off about it i didnt like.  i have never liked red hat or fedora, i really dont know why.  but ubuntu linux, a debian based system is by far my favorite.

 the .iso is a single cd which i like, its comes with some basic apps,  not 2 or 3 of the same thing.  through apt-get i have customized it to exacilty what i want.  i havnt booted into windows in over two weeks cause i like this distro so much.

My new favorite is Ubuntu! I have always liked Slackware, and it is not really too hard for newbies anymore, as long as you RTFM.  I really like SuSE, but it is a bit slow.  Gentoo rocks, if you have the patience. Mandrake/Mandriva has always seemed a little buggy to me. Redhat was my first distro, and Fedora is still pretty good. IMHO.

grml

The Geeks distro
http://grml.org

Incidentally also said to be excellent for blind users.
Live CD installs to hard disk or USB drive.
Uses Gentoo's squashfs for maximum software on one cd.
Abundant documentation and a proliferation of console tools

The best way I've seen of getting a GNU/Debian unstable installation that 'just works'.

And guys where is Arch Linux, the most customizable one.
I vote for Arch because of their rolling release, fast bug fixing and for the best wiki available on internet for any distro.
You can customize it the way you want although I won't recommend it to beginners but anyone with two months of experience with Linux can surly play with it and it is the best out there only after slackware which is my second favorite.

I would start here:

http://www.archlinux.org/

Have you heard of Gentoo?  It's a rolling release, fast at bug fixing and has some of the best docs and has had them from years.  Actually, Gentoo is well known for its documentation.  It also has not one but two wikis.  One is unofficial and has been around for a good long while and one is new but is the official wiki run by Gentoo folks.

I have used Gentoo, Slackware, OpenSuSE, Fedora, Red Hat Linux(Ent. Version), K/X/Ubuntu, Slax, Sabayon, Mint, Debian, Open Solaris(Not Linux though), Zenwalk, CentOS and finally settled on Arch Linux.
It has everything I need. Simplicity, stripped down size, great documentation and pre build packages (you know how much time it take to compile packages on gentoo), great community, hand edited config and everything.

I do know how long it takes to compile on Gentoo.   ;D  I been using it since about 2003.  Of course, I built a new rig tho.  I have a AMD 4 core CPU running at 3.2Ghz, 16Gbs of ram, lots of hard drive space too.  I also have a really large CPU cooler and a large case with lots of fans. 

If you run Gentoo, you at least need REAL good cooling.
