What linux distro is best for Macs?

I justified the purchase of my Mac by convincing myself that it would be a good tool to learn Unix type stuff and get an awesome GUI as well. Now I find myself feeling the urge to install Linux on it. But, the perrenial question - which distro? I have my eye on Gentoo, and on the PC, it took the most time and typing, but the least trouble, to install and get running, but I found compiling everything from scratch was not worth the cycles.
Also, I'd like to dual boot with OSX.
I have a 14" iBook G4. Will linux for Mac retain the iBook's instant-sleep feature?
