Which disrto should I choose

I'm very new to linux. I am currently running windows 98se on my pentium 2.53 ght processor with 512 mb ram. I would like to try Linux out but am not sure what to use. I am kinda interested in debian woody version but what do I know, what I can tell you is I spend quite a bit of time online, browsing, chatting, downloading, etc. I listen to music occasonally, burn cd's,dvd's, etc. Music,video,picture editing/printing ,gaming, letter writing, resumes, etc. I am interested in security, I always run a firewall, pop blocker, spy blocker,etc. I use quite a bit of usb peripheals. I am interested in an all around kinda distro that doesen't nessasarily focus just on one thing, something easy to install, straight forward. (I am a newbie) Would debian woody be a good choice? What do you recommend. I hope this helps, Thanks for your time!!!!

Help me enjoy Linux!!!
