Because I have bad experiences with non-LTS Ubuntu versions, I would
recommend using Kubuntu Lucid. You can download an ISO with
Lucid+Trinity as well, but the Trinity version is not up to date
(although it works fine).
The standard kernel is old, but newer kernels have been backported to
Lucid and you can install them through the repositories.

Basically Kubuntu Lucid with Trinity and a backported kernel is what I
tend to set up now.

Ubuntu Precise is the next LTS, but it still has many bugs and Trinity
doesn't work that great on it (you can hack up the Oneiric release to
install or use the nightlies, but neither are problem free). Hopefully
with the next Trinity release and more bugfixing by the Ubuntu team, it
will be able to supersede Lucid.

Best regards,
