Spend some time searching here on LQ - plenty of good recommendations for Linux info.
Ubuntu is just another distro - seems to be the current favoutite for new users. Doesn't appear to suffer from fault that caused you such grief with the XP CD - which incidentally is appears to be a weakness in the M$oft installer code.
