I suggest Ubuntu or Kubuntu. Kubuntu is the same as Ubuntu, but with the KDE desktop.

(K)Ubuntu is easy to install, will pick up most hardware without any problems, and has some good graphical config tools to help you. There is also some excellent documentation on the Ubuntu Wiki.

IMO: Currently, Suse is the best bet. It's nice to look at, features are good.
