best version for a linux newbie?

Ive got an extra comp to install linux on and have redhat 7.2 with the book, is this good to start out on or are there better more currnet versions i should use? I messed around with the 7.2 awhile back but had aohell for internet access and converted back to windows. i now have cable and want to get rid of windows BS since i dont use it for games.

I have not used it and it cost money. IT would be cool if they had a try before you buy.

Dont use RH7.3 on a desktop system. RedHat 9.0 would be your best bet.

They are really quite similar, but mandrake has a smaller learning curve than redhat.
