I can recommend SpartanII and Spartan3. These chips are quite cheap and 
powerful. A development system under Linux is available since a few months. 
It's free. I recommend to set kate as an external editor, because it's so 
much better to work with. At the moment I prefer SpartanII because they only 
need 2 different supply voltages. Spartan3 needs 3, which leads to a much 
more complex design. Because you are a beginner you should buy a starter kit. 
If you plan to create complex designs you REALLY should learn VHDL. VHDL 
programming is possible (and very comfortable) with the IDE from Xilinx.

Cheers, Martin
