You can download Ubuntu (or order free CDs) from www.ubuntu.com. Look for a live CD (not sure they offer one). This will allow you to easily test Ubuntu Linux before you install it on your machine.

From the installation point of view, most Linux distributions are quite similar and easy to install nowadays.

RedHat is a commercial distro these days, but you can download Fedora Core which is run by the same people.
I personally would suggest Ubuntu for a beginner, as the Ubuntu forums are both active and friendly.

Yeah Ubuntu and Mandriva 2007, are probably the easiest distros to get comfortable with. Fedora is solid, but is not very inviting.
