There's no single right or wrong answer to this question. Each of us has his/her favorite distribution and each has equally valid reasons for that preference. If you are new to Unix in general and Linux in particular, you are probably better off using one of the major "boxed versions", like Redhat, Caldera, etc.

Amoung the any of the Linux distributions, what will wind up mattering the most is what hardware you are running on. If everything that's in your system is on the "Hardware Compatability List" (HCL) for that vendor then installation will be easy and the system will perform as advertised. The major's all have published HCL's that list all of the harware that's known to work with their distribution. Good places to look include,

As to size, any Linux can be stripped down to a very small disk footprint. This might not be a very usable system for general use, but it is doable. With the current linux distributions you can probably expect to need something on the order of 1-2Gb for a reasonable system.
