Go grab the min install cd of Gentoo and work your way through the install guide. Not only will it help you setup a base system, but Gentoo has an amazing amount of HOWTOs and a great community for trouble shooting issues.

I would say that installing any current mainstream enthusiast distro (ubuntu,fc,suse,etc) would be sufficient. It will allow the user to have ease of use and still allow the user to compile code, update the kernel, etc. at their own pace.
This is kind of like learning to ride a motorcycle for the first time on a modern sportbike...it can be done, but may also result in a quick death.
