i used ubuntu, interface is good but iv tryied to work mostly from terminal to get fammiliar with commands.
what do u think about hardware that i have, its enough for ubuntu server?


That's good - if you can learn to work in a terminal on the desktop, it's just as good as the prompt. (Performance issues aside).

The Hardware you've got is fine for a server, but if you want to run a gui you'll need to look at a lower spec one.

by "a lower spec one", you mean a window manager such as fluxbox or jwm?

Some options. I agree that debian is probably the easiest to set up and configure. Sarge has all the bugs ironed out now.

FreeNAS is interesting, but limited.
NASlite costs money, but is excellent for large server networks.

I run a BSD based server at home, mainly because I'm used to setting them up from my days working with *nix based systems.

Suse, since it is Novell and designed for servers and possibly Centos as a second option. I've always wondered about the same thing. Purpose only poses which server type you want to run, not distribution.

I visited various sites and gathered a few distros for my personal network and each ones seems to work great for certain "realms" while not being so great at other task-based configs.

Personally, I'm running FreeBSD for my firewall, Ubuntu server for my www stuff and testing Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandriva, FreeBSD, Gentoo and a few others to replace a windoz primary domain controller.

So far Fedora seems to be the best for the task, but I'll be doing a few more weeks of testing before making the final choice. Anyone else have experience with this and could recommend something better, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm super happy with FreeBSD+snort as my firewall and Ubuntu as my webserver.

CentOS is were my vote goes, as far as Unix goes it's all about FreeBSD for me.

I've got one centos server, its kind of nice that it is so close to redhat and stuff. Normally I'd go with redhat for a server just because of the support you get from them, but lately I've been leaning towards slackware
