Gosh, I think it was RH 7.0 when I started.
I tried Corel Linux first, but couldn't get it to work with dial-up.
I managed to install the penguin-something pppoe pkgs on RH though.
I stuck it out with Fed(up)ora until about 3, too, I think...
(Got tired of yum breaking stuff).
It was 2006, when I switched to Ubuntu.  I used PCLinuxOS for during 
2008, too, then switched back to Ubuntu, then Debian.
I'm now using Debian on all my desktops, but still have Ubuntu on my
