Distro ques

i wuz just starting out to install a distro. And I have 3 options.

: Mandrake 10.1
: SUSE 9.2
: Xandros 3.0

and I want to know which one of them is the easiest to use for a newbie. i can work with the console but not above a certain level. I have heard that mandy and suse r easy to use but then read different reviews on xandros and it looks tempting(more than the others) . i have in the past installed mandrake 10 and worked with it(when i finally quit after days of unability to do anything). I also want the distro to do most of the installation work as i hate going to the console. So which one iz the easiest for the noobest of the noob( that iz me)
