I'm just curious what you guys think would be a good Linux flavor for a server. I don't care on the difficulty, i'll learn and do all the readings. Just need to know what Linux users consider a good linux server flavor.

And also, can it support remote connection? Like could i use remote desktop from windows or another program to remote in.

Thanks

Well, going for RedHat will aid you to find more help on-line on any issue, so from my experience, RedHat 9 or CentOS will be a good choice. CentOS is a up comming flavor which is 100% RedHat compatible.

Hope this information helped you.

my preferances are mandriva(altho not as great for servers) and SUSE. SUSE i would recomend. just because it is easy to use and its put out by NOVEL

i've actually found mandriva to be easier to use (so far) than suse. on my system, when trying to install certain packages i would ALWAYS get errors with suse. i haven't had one dependancy problem with mandriva yet..
i'm liking that :D

although i've never tried it as a dedicated server, i do have apache / php / etc. running on it..
