Which Linux on IBM Thonkpad R40e?

I'm using IBM Thinkpad R40e, CPU =Celeron 2.4 GHz, HDD = 30 GB, RAM = 624 MB.
I'm running winXP and I have 3,4 GB unformated partition prepared for linux instalation. Which free Linux distribution should I install. I need a graphic interface and support for Java, C and Bash programming, VI, EMACS editors (I will learning basics of bash, Java and C programming.)

Suggest using Fedora Core 2. Find it to be the most user friendly.

Hi,

   Fedora Core 3 just came out this month. Worth to give it a try.
Besides, Redhat/Fedora is the most popular Linux distrubutor, you can get the most help for it.

Regards,

Wesly

Q: to owensleftfoot
Why Mandrake? It looks very good but it does not have all the features of Fedora. By that I means GUI driven user friendly stuff. Am I wrong?
