Gentoo The 2008.0 final release is out! Code-named "It's got what plants crave," this release contains numerous new features including an updated installer, improved hardware support, a complete rework of profiles, and a move to Xfce instead of GNOME on the LiveCD. LiveDVDs are not available for x86 or amd64, although they may become available in the future. The 2008.0 release also includes updated versions of many packages already available in your ebuild tree.

You might want to try Arch Linux.

It's not as automatic as Fedora/Ubuntu/SuSE/etc... but it's not as complicated to install as Gentoo.

It has precompiled packages optimized for i686, but can also rebuild your whole system(or parts of it) if you wish.

There is also a x86-64 port, not sure of how complete this one is yet. Haven't tested it.

Despite being a "geek-distro" I(coming from a Ubuntu-background) found my around it using the beginners guide very easily.

Recommended. ;)
