varkey: I suggest you use FC3 since you know "Red Hat" and you've used it, I also use FC3 with a lightweight manager named Xfce 4.2, next to Xfce 4.2 I have installed Gnome (but I really don't need it, I only use Gnome's GDM & gdmflexiserver ), Xfce 4.2 doesn't cause any problems on FC3 and I think it's the best linux distro for you to use it, give it a try

I forgot to mention that will mail a free cd.

I believe the cd is a live cd, meaning you don't have to install it to try it out.

ubuntu is based on Debian and is getting a lot of attention.

you could try Fedora core 3 with a light weight environemnt such as XFCE, XFCE even comes with core three and looks very nice. Google for it to see screenshots. You can also use apt/yum for packaging which is really nice if your new, i used it when i was new and i still use it today, mabey im lazy but i would rather yum install then compile
