Ubuntu is a Debian based Linux that is very popular these days. I am also dying to try Gentoo. I have been using mostly Mandrake since 7.2. It works well with a Z. But I am not as happy with 10.1. The Z works fine with it. It all depends on how much time you want to spend under the hood fiddling with everything.
I have not tried SUSE since the very early days. Sounds like cyphactor has the Z finally working with full syncing with it. I might give it a try too!
I used Mandrake for a long time (versions 6.0 to about 8.2), then used SuSE for a bit and switched to Ubuntu in the fall. I'm very, very impressed with Ubuntu and highly recommend it.
That said, I haven't got my Zaurus working with it yet (it doesn't recognize it on the USB - I think it's more a problem with drivers and my hardware than anything but not sure yet).
