    What do you mean by which version? I'd use the most recent one, fedora 9.
    But for server purposes I'd prefer CentOS then, if you want to have a RHEL clone. (ohterwise I'd take Debian).

    hi Ben,

    yes, actually i was planning to have a fedora box that will server as a distributed file server (for now) for my network. also i want to all my workstations migrate to fedora. so if you think that fedora 9 is good then i will go 9.

    by the way i have here a list so maybe you can help me choose 1:

    Fedora 9 Final i686 Live KDE
    Fedora 9 Final PPC
    Fedora 9 Final source
    Fedora 9 Final i686 Live
    Fedora 9 Final i386
    Fedora 9 Final x86_64 Live
    Fedora 9 Final x86_64 Live KDE
    Fedora 9 Final i386
    Fedora 9 Final PPC

    note: some were saying than v9 is not yet tested that's why i want to know which version should i go to.

    PPC is for PowerPC Architecture, e.g. older MACS.
    x86_64 = 64bit e.g. for an Intel / AMD 64 bit CPU
    i386 for all 32bit x86 CPUs, i686 is an optimizied i386 version, afair starting from PII.
    Live should be just a LiveCD version.

    So if you do not have any MAC, 64bit CPU or need a LiveCD I'd chose "Fedora 9 Final i386" as i686 is only avalable as Live and not installerversion.
