Choosing the right distribution for a very secure webserver
I want to build up a small but very secure "production-style" webserver box. My idea is to start with an old computer (say a PII or the like) and put a very solid, stable and reliable server on a similarly solid OS platform. Which server I know for certain: Apache Tomcat. The problem is with the OS... I'm pretty sure that there must be some linux flavor that fullfils the task perfectly. But the question is... which one?
I need your comments! If you point this or that distribution, please explain WHY you'd recomment it. ;)
Thanks in advance!
