I think the most important thing you have to keep in mind is who is gong 
to administer your cluster. It's important that the administrator is 
confortable/experienced with the distribution you are going to use.

As for which distribution to use, you can safely choose from one that 
has very good support (community and/or vendor). In no particular order:

- Debian
- Ubuntu LTS.
- RedHad /CentOS (company/ comunity support)

There are a few Hadoop distributions available from companies that you 
can check out:

- Mapr
- Cloudera's Hadoop distribution
- Hortonwork (not sure about them providing a Hadoop distribution)

They offer installation instructions on different platforms for their 
products. Maybe you can check them out to see if they are good for you.
