    If you want something really simple I would go FC3. You can use Apt-get to resolve dependices really easily. But then there be no fun in figuring out how to do it yourslef, which mind you I can not do myself. ^_^

    I agree with natefico, but I would just use yum to upgrade and use sendmail. It is dependable and very configurable.
    I have a prod sendmail server never had any issues except squirrelmail is a little slow.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Yeah, fedora would definatly be the way to go. I previously used windows, but I installed fedora with the graphical installer, no problems. Then, I was suprised how easy it was to adapt from windows to fedora, I wasent even expecting a graphical interface! So yeah, fedora core 3 might be a good one.
