MythDora is probably the best. Whatever you do, I'd suggest making sure
the distribution includes the latest 0.19-fixes branch if you must have
a preinstalled/prepackaged distribution. There are a number of critical
fixes there that address the issues with 0.19. I don't know of many
real big problems outside of the stuff fixed in 0.19-fixes.
