i'd suggest following the link and taking the test, that'll give you some suggestions on distro's.

are you using yast to try to install apache?
because you need to. unless you're using another installer such as smartpm which im not sure if it exists for suse 9.2, but is there any particular reason you're using an older version of suse?

check this site: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_9.2
it looks like it goes from the installation of the OS through configuring the server for all sorts of good stuff (such as http, mail, ftp, etc).

I'd suggest you use Gentoo for this. It takes longer to get set up, but you'll end up with a system optimized to do exactly what you want. The Gentoo site also provides step by step instructions for a plethora of things, including setting up a mail server.

I wouldn't even consider SuSe for this - if you need something a bit more user-friendly, use CentOS and follow the qmailrocks.org instructions for RHEL.

I've put together a basic tutorial on setting up a Linux/Apache/Mysql/Php server.

http://www.quantact.com/wiki/index.php/ ... key_system

It goes thru the process step by step for setting up a Centos 4.3 box.
Centos is a good choice of distro because it is modern, has good package support/security upgrades, and has lots of documentation available on the net.
