Hello all, Im about to try run a small website out of my house mostly for the experience of runing a webserver. I an very new to Linux so I need a nice noob distro that will work very well as a webserver. Mandrake was my first choice bad can anyone give me any other distros that might suit me better?

ClarkConnect might do it, but I am not sure how easy it is.

 

I'd vote for Debian, as it's very stable and easy to keep up to date, and it's what I run, but it's not n00b friendly.

I'd go with Mandrake if no one tells me there is a just as friendly but better as a server distro than it.

 

Since Im pretty new to Linux I don't really know how Mandrake stands up as a server, Im just looking for something I wont kill myself trying to use and will work well.

suse, redhat or mandrake are all quite nice for this task if you do not want to mess with too much information. if you like to get your hands dirty and want a rock-stable system, debian is it imho.
