Try Suse or maybe Knoppix.
Unless you have experience, both Debian and Gentoo can often be tricky to
install and use.
If you want to learn more about linux however Debian is probably the way to go
- you may not be able to be terribly productive with that machine for a while
tho, while you get to grips with it.
I myself installed Debian from the beginning, it took me a few months to be
anyway near productive with it (mainly cos I kept messing around with stuff,
breaking it and then having to fix it all again).
