Question Debian or Ubuntu for my server

What is recomended to do?

Install Debian Sarge on a server or Ubuntu 5.10?

Is Ubuntu stable enough and will i not have problems with updating my system when a new version is available?

Who knows?

I think ubuntu is too new to answer your question. The Ubuntu 5.10 is the first server release.

If you want to go sure, use debian. Personally i use debian for all of my servers and had never problems with updates.

I don't think Ubuntu will cause problems, but if you want to go sure, use Debian, as Till said. I'm using it as well on all my servers.

Hello all the people who gave me advise, hints & tips.
I want to let you know that my Dell 1425 SC server is up and running with Debian sarge with 2.6 (686) SMP kernel with RAID 1.
I have followed Falko's perfect setup for Debian Sarge.
The ISPConfig system is also running.

Happy me!
