Debian and its clones Debian is not quite like any other distro out there. If bigger is better, then Debian wins hands down. Aside from having the largest collection of free software packages, Debian also runs on 11 platforms. But there is more to Debian than just size. Travel writer and recent Debian convert Robert Storey tackles the whole installation procedure head on and gives his report.

Gentoo is a nice Distro, but it is extremely difficult to find an ISO that works properly. I have tried twice now, and both the 1.4_rc3 and the 1.4 final CDs had problems. Not that Linux shouldn't have problems, but Debian is tried and true.
