If you're looking for the middle ground between Gentoo and Lycoris,
SuSE 8.0 is quite slick.
If you don't mind a tricky install in exchange for years of trouble-free
use, then Debian is a good option. I'd use Stable (3.0) if you don't
mind older packages and no headaches, Testing if you like newer
software and don't mind a little bit of tweaking every now and again.
