For servers i can recommend DEBIAN or if you need some newer packages the UBUNTU server linux.

But I've never tried PHP4 and PHP5 on one server at the same time. This might be complicated...
Also, I've never tried asp...

I have set up a few srevers using Linux, but I have used specific Server setups.

I use Mitels server distro. It is command line ish, but if you know what it is asking it os very easy to set up. Once you have your server running all the administration is done via a web application like Firefox etc.

You can have a look at www.contribs.org

I hope this helps.

Paxo.

Debian Sarge (3.1). Download this netinstall CD image (you need a fast internet connection to install Debian with this one): http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...86-netinst.iso (this one if for 32-bit systems!)
