Unix or Linux for http server?
For a while know I have been messing around with apache, mysql and php on a windows machine i had. Now i decided to use that machine as a domain controller. Through my school i can buy old pc's they do not use for really cheap so i picked up a p4 1.7 ghz with 40GB hard drive and 256MB of ram for $100. I would like to put some form of unix/linux on it but i am not sure which one. I am leaning towards Solaris 10 but if you guys would recommend somthing else please tell. Or even if you think i should use some form of windows even. Also is 256 enough or should i had an extra stick.. This is just a web server for testing use messing around with settings but i would like to have a real site sometime this summer.
