Suse handles some things quite strange. I used both RedHat and Suse (and
more ;) ) and on Suse some things are very different. This starts with
locations of directories (INN for example) and strange scripts and ends
with Yast the tool that overwrites your changes. Okay, I used Suse 5.1 and 
you can turn off Yast, so maybe some things changed. It's not a bad
distribution but IMO it's not better than RedHat. 

One IMO quite bad thing is that they mix commercial with free software so
you can't copy the CDs easily!

Debian I would say, though I don't miss something on RedHat ;)

Give Debian a try it's cheap and if you don't like it you supported the
free software world with your money even if you don't want to keep it.
