Which version of Linux to install?!?!?!?

Ok, here is the situation, I just got a new computer so I want to put my old one to work in the kitchen to play mp3s/mp3 cds.
I am putting a 1.0 gig (yes, 1) hdd in it. I want to know what you all think I should do regarding Linux on this machine. So tell me which version you would put on it and why? SuSe, Redhat, Mandrake, Debian?!?!? Also, which is easiest to install, I am planning on burning the ISO to install it...

Thanks People!

I've used Red Hat, Mandrake, Slackware, and Corel. I found the Corel installer simpler than any of the others and once installed it's pretty easy to use.
