Best advice I can give you is to try different distros yourself. FC, Suse, Mandriva, Ubuntu, Gentoo, are all good. You can try one and change to another one latter on to try different things and see what fits tour needs the most. There is no "best" distro out there.<br />
A few links:<br />

Best live CD? Why would you want a live CD? You don't get to keep what you make or anything.

The Hundred Gamer, Linux CDs are best used almost as a Demo Linux. It's a good way to show people what it's like without having to make the sacrifice of installing it....<br />
<br />
The easiest distro to use I have tried so far (out of FC5, Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS) has to be <a href="http://www.pclinuxonline.com/news.php" target="_blank">PCLinuxOS</a>. I'm currently using it... but will be going onto something meatier soon (PCLinuxOS is just too easy and it's set up by default as KDE which I hate to be honest).

Ubuntu is now a live CD that can be installed...<br>
So is mepis.<br><br>
Basicallly an install cd that doubles as a live disk..<br><br>
And live CD's are great for recovery of files and also partitioning a HD..

Sabayon has Compiz-Fusion and a large selection of programs on their CD. They also have full media support, NTFS read write, 3D games, and support for lots of hardware. And best of all their latest release really cuts down on boot time when you run it off a DVD/CD.
