mandriva or mepis

I believe these are the easiest to install. If you are doing single-boot, use the mepis CD. If all your hardware is recognized while operating under the live-evaluation mode, a click on the desktop starts the installation procedure. A single boot install involves about 4 mouse clicks, accepting default settings.
