    BackTrack is designed for this sort of thing.

    It's not the easiest, but well worth the effort
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

    +1 for Back Track

    I use it myself. It is not a "newbie" friendly distro but it has a lot of goodies for security and penetration. It runs as mainly a live session.

    Not sure about your exploit knowledge.
    But try metasploit db_autopwn, Nessus and NMap.
    If your knowledge is slightly higher, use Backtrack and probe some services.
    Get Radare out and pwn some binz.
    Radare and Metasploit make a powerfull 0DayCocktail.
