The above two websites should help you to some extent.

I too would suggest, Ubuntu. If you don't have an
internet connection (or are using dial up connection),
I would recommend Mandriva (known to work /almost/
without problems) to begin with. Once you are
familiar, you can try out others. If you wish to not
disturb your existing setup, you can try out the
Ubuntu LIVE CD / Knoppix LIVE CD.
