    What to use for a server


    I am trying to set up a server in my home, I have a copy of Windows 2000 advanced server but i don't really want to use it. I want it to have a GUI because I'm still new to Linux. What is a good distro to use and should i set up a separate server to use as my Webserver, I don't need to use a mail server. I need it to be a domain controller and i want to use roaming profiles.
    Thank you for your time.
