    Is there a recommended Linux distribution that may work best with ISPConfig?

    I would recommend Debian Etch if you plan to setup a server with ISPConfig! :) Very stable, lots of documentation available and last but not least: i have a good experience with it.

    Debian has proven to be a very stable server. However it does not feature the latest versions of all programs and stuff - but it is stable and stability on a server is what you want.

    Thanks, I'll try Debian then. Had too many issues creeping up with Fedora. Burned the 3 Debian DVD's this morning and will install tonight.

    If the server is connected to internet you will only need the net install CD.

    my vote is to ubuntu server... 1 year and a half been running with 6.06 and zero problems, recently updated to hardy.

    I installed Debian Etch. The server installs went well. I'm having some DNS issues but I don't think that's caused by ISPConfig directly.

    As I do use the computer for other things I'm setting up other programs as well. Lot's of problems in Debian with multimedia issues. Things that 'just worked' in Fedora don't in Debian on an AMD64 system. But that's off topic for here.

    You didn't say that you also want to run a desktop on the system. For desktops I'd recommend Ubuntu, for servers Debian.
