In my first of many posts, I would like to ask the group what flavor of
Linux is recommended for a newbie.

Mandrake and Red Hat are the most newbie friendly IMHO but I think that 
Mandrake has better HW detection.

I will probably be purchasing a
book or 2 to help get things off the ground, so a good book recommendation
would also be appreciated.

Running Linux by O reilly is a good book.
HTH.
