Personally, I think CentOS 5 is probably the most reasonable choice. It
is what (or RHEL 5 which is the same) a good portion of our community is
going to be running. It is also easy to work with.
Another alternative would be Debian or Ubuntu Dapper but they are all
really the same thing :). The nice thing is any of these three are
fairly static installs that are going to be reasonably predictable.
