Which O/S to chose?

    I've the following O/S's to chose from when doing a reload:

    Fedora Core 4
    Sarge Plain (only Network and ssh, no other preconfigured Services)
    SuSE 9.3

    Which one will give the least headache during install and when upgrading O/S?

    I'd say FC4 will produce fewer Plesk bugs but isn't supported until Plesk 8. SuSE is probably next best, then Sarge. There seem to be quite a few Debian problems with Plesk so unless you're a particular fan of Debian I'd go for SuSE.

    However, if I was you I'd push for CentOS4 as it's free, fully supported and one of the better builds of Plesk.

    I support Cranky on this - go with CentOS4. I have a few servers using that and they have been the least of my worries.

    Thanks for info - although I only have the options posted above (O/S reload by DC).
