Building a linux server, anythying I should watch out for?
I have a 4-processor P3 (4 x 550mhz) server I got and it will have 2 hard drives in a RAID array.
Is there anything I should watch out for in using a 4 processor system or using the hard drives in RAID? Any particular distro that would be best in this case?Lappy - Dell E1505 - 1.6ghz Intel Pro Duo

Usually when you want a heavy duty server, Debian is the clear choice.
But it often comes down to preference. Linux distros can differ greatly...a lot of people stick to one distro because they can learn it inside and out

The RAID card will be your biggest problem. If the installer recognizes that, then your set."Some people, when confronted with a problem, think 'I know, Ill use regular expressions.' Now they have two problems."

I'd have to vote for debian for extreme stability.
