I would recommend that you buy Linspire. No guarantee that "all" your hardware will be detected, but most of it will, and you get phone support.

This is the distro I use and recommend, Why because it works right out of the box. No need to configure Everything, everything just works. It also comes as a 1 CD install that is a live CD that you can install later if you wish.
