    Linspire if you want a Windows-like environment.

    SuSE if you want a very easy setup. (takes a while to boot though)

    The other ones I haven't tried, but of course I hear Mandrake and Fedora are awesome. Not sure about Xandros, and Knoppix I think is better as a livecd and not being installed. Your decision though of course.

    Xandros is also good if you want a MS Windows-like environment. Neither Xandros nor Linspire are free (no cost) however. Xandros offers their OCE version (which is crippled) for free. The others you mentioned are freely downloadable. See the above link for more information on what distributions are out there.
