Hi,
you should go for Mandrake. after some experience you can choose other distros. The is not much difference. basic commands are same. but Red hat have redhat-* commands never used RedHat so cant say much about it. But, i personally think Mandrake is very good for linux newbies. i even started with Mandrake.
Thanks,

would suggest to use red hat linux 9 first. As it almost detects all the hardware without much problems. Learn how to use basic commands, installing rpms, upgrading kernels etc. then switch to other one if u want to...

I'm using FC2 at the moment..

But isn't Red Hat 9 outdated now? Mandrake detects almost all hardware too and is more easier to get started with, imho
