Well thanks everyone for your input, I have a system I am going to use
and its only about 9 months old so I think the Redhat 9.0 will work ok
I have started downloading the iso images from their site, I actually
have Mandrake 8.2, and may look into Debian. I figure it can't hurt to
tinker will different versions and see whats out there. A final
question, is there anything else I should grad for add on software
like Apache(or is that already a component of most Linux versions)?
Thanks again I REALLY appreciate all the info!!
