    For servers i can recommend DEBIAN or if you need some newer packages the UBUNTU server linux.

    I have set up a few srevers using Linux, but I have used specific Server setups.

    I use Mitels server distro. It is command line ish, but if you know what it is asking it os very easy to set up. Once you have your server running all the administration is done via a web application like Firefox etc.

    You can have a look at www.contribs.org

    I hope this helps.
