    small server distribution advice


    Hi,
    I have a small home network which is connected with an adsl router. I wish to set up a server with three functions. To act as a file server internally, a print server, and to provide remote access to the files through ftp or some other method.
    I am after a distribution which is small, easy to setup and administer (preferably remotely) and relatively light on resources as the system doesnt have much power.
    I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to whether i should go for a distribution like SME-server or just one of the major distributions and install the required packages.
    Thanks.

    Debian or Slackware. Those are suitable to run on older hardware and don't come with the bloat that some other major distributions seem to can't do without.
    I\'m so tired .....
