    The distro isn't necessarily the problem, they're going to be much of a muchness, just pick your fave.

    The real problem is bandwidth. Are you sure you have enough? You might have a lot of down-bandwidth on your connection, but you might find your upload speeds quite restrictive if you're on ADSL. Also, be prepared for having no bandwidth left for other things...

    Maybe you should look at hosting this on a dedicated server one someone elses bandwidth?

    What all do I need to run a CSS server I have a dedicated OC12 Server that I get threw work for free? Is it hard to setup? Do I need to buy a new key?

    i think you would idealy need a system that idealy is 2.8 to 3ghz+ server, 1 to 1.5 gig of ram, the ideal hard drive would be somthing fast like a 10,000 although a fast hd is not required
