I like debian the best of the linux distros... mainly because it does not taste like a beta, I know however that YDL is aimed at the beginner and to recrute MacOS users to linux.

There is a pretty good pdf on booting various Macs in the installation manual from http://www.linuxppc.com that may help with your booting.
