What's a good lite P'n'P RPG?

I have a group of friends (3-4 inc. me) who usually come by monthly for beer and board games, the favorites being Arkham Horror, Dominion and Battlestar Gallactica. I was thinking of trying to get an RPG session going and picked up recent editions of Pathfinder and Call of Cthulhu. When I presented them to the group it was clear that the kind of work that goes into a full scale RPG wasn't something they were interested in. None of us has touched an RPG for more than 20 years.
I'm looking for suggestions for a lite RPG that can be played in a couple of hours. It also needs to support a GM and 2 players minimum. I'd also be a first time GM, having always been a player, so something with easy prep work would be nice. I'm looking for something that we can play through that will either get them more interested in a full-fledged RPG or let me know that this group is better off sticking to our usual board games.
