    Most of them are just ment for different things. But it terms of overall performance I think Gentoo is the best.

    You started with a question then reposted with some statements. I'm confused. What do you really want to know?

    Let me see if I understand you correctly,

    You want to know what distriblution of linux for:

    1. Backups using Samba server share via the network.

    2. Run a web server.

    3. Run a CS9000 Console Server to remotely manage and trouble- shoot distributed server farms/racks and network appliances (routers, RAS etc)? or are you refering to something else like the gaming console?

    More questions:

    1. I would like to know if you want the samba for backup of the your web content or other user data like word processing, spreadsheets, other databases?

    2. Is it inside your home/business only or directly exposed to the internet from work?

    3. Do you feel your stronger in Windows general and server knowledge or Linux?

    4. Is this a critical machine or for learning more on Linux?

    Hiya,

    Redhat or Mandrake appear to be the most popular distrobutions for beginners, after youve passed your "beginner" stages of linux usage, then really it comes down to personal choice.

    All linux distros could do what you want, so really i dont think their is a "best" distro.

    Like j said, there is no best. some are better at some things than others. For those new to linux (like me) I agree with Redhat or Mandrake.
