Check out the distribution forum here.
There are TONS of discussions going on there dealing with your question. The most important part about distro selection is not being afraid to try something new. This isn't windows :-P.

Welcome, and Happy Hunting :-)

ubuntu is a fine first distribution. So it pclinuxos. So is SimplyMepis. These are the ones I have tried. All are user-friendly.

Please use better thread titles in future (i.e. ones that describe the problem you're having/your question). When you post a thread, you are told that titles like "Help me" are bad.
