    I need to set up new server at work

    two questions:

    1. Mandrake 8.2 Prosuite or Red Hat 7.2 Pro...any recommendations?
    The server is basically just drive application serving.

    2. Anyone know of some good reference material - online or otherwise.
    I'm very new to Linux

    here's the Hardware

    2 x Athlon MP 1600
    1024GB Crucial Pc2100 Reg. ECC
    Tyan thunder S2462UNG (w/int. dual channel adaptec SCSI & 2 x 100Mbps NW))
    NMB 460w PS
    2 x Seagate 73.4 Ultra160 SCSI 10K rpm (open bays for 9 more :D)

    I'm sure I'll have a bunch more questions once I get into it.

    Distro watch have a lot of info on almost every distro and LWN have a comprehensive distro list. That being said Redhat specialise in server products so it would be a good choice, and the mandrake pro edition gets good reviews. Personally I'd be using slackware, but that would be an option only for someone with a fair amount of linux experience.
