Any of the distros listed in my signature will run just fine on 98% of systems and will do automatic partitioning. They each have their own pros and cons, but are all Debian based and use apt-get, to my mind by far the best package management system out there. Ubuntu is, after all, just Debian with extra hype, extra flakyness, and a few extra tweaks .........
