i also wouldn't recommend gentoo for beginners. its a fine thing if
you're familiar with some basics and know your way at the commandline. .
the ways to install gentoo differ from 'rather easy' to 'geek god' and
can take from just hours to days. though its a good option if you know
some basics and have some massive cpu-power.
i think it really doesn't matter what specific distro you use at the
beginning. either way you have to learn your way through maintain a
linux-box, and i never ever met a single person who tried only one
distro and stayed there :) the one big trap with linux is one of its
greatest advantages: the freedom of choice.
for example, distrowatch lists 386 linux-distributions... ;)

and while i never tried ccrma or agnula i personally would tend to
agnula in favour of APT to RPM. i also found debian much 'lighter' than
redhat/fedora and the beauty of debians package system is superior*.

*no flamewar intended, just personal flavour.
