Depends on what you're trying to do..

If you want to set up a server based system that has support for Cold 
Fusion and Oracle, go Red Hat.. If you're looking for a desktop system, 
Mandrake takes the cake.

People used to dump a lot of shit on Red Hat in the past(including me), 
but the 7.1 release is really really nice. Putting the Ximian GNOME 
desktop on top of Red Hat(and others) is nice for a desktop; almost 
comparable with Mandrake. If you're looking for pure performance, go Debian.

Shout if you have any more questions :)
