I recommend mythbuntu. Lightweight but plenty of stuff for a multimedia system.

It depends on what you mean by multimedia pc

For multimedia production: ubuntustudio (http://ubuntustudio.org/)

For Multimedia/home entertainments: mythbuntu (http://www.mythbuntu.org/) or mythtv (http://www.mythtv.org/)

I'm guessing that you meant home entertainments, watching movies/tv, listening to music etc, in which case, I really don't think you can do much better than mythbuntu if you still require your pc for normal desktop use, or mythtv if you intend for the pc to be dedicated solely as a media player.

If it is multimedia production you're interested in, then I am a fan of ubuntustudio, but there are other linuxmedia distros, although most would still argue in favour of XP.
