No Drivers, which Linux OS is best?

the ONLY reason I love XP is for it's ability to install drivers with VERY little user interaction, most drivers are contained on the install CD itself, if not it goes online to find the best.  I am a linux newbie, and I want to know which OS will be best for a situation where a PC has few or no drivers?

Thanks,
Bill Mirza

As drivers are in most cases contained with the modules in the kernel just pick one that has one of the latest kernel
Linux distributions are based on the same kernel so you can easily use a kernel from a different distribution or one
you have compiled your self.

It might also be a good advice to check on linux compatability list to check if your hardware is supported.
