Fedora 12 is a desktop edition, but you can modify it during the install or afterwards to remove the desktop stuff.
What kind of server do you want ? If it's for http then it will be fine. If you want it serving terminal clients then you may need more ram.

Bear in mind that it is only supported (updated) for a short period - you may be better off with whitebox linux for a free version of RHEL.

Hi,

why don't you use CentOS for your server? It's Redhat Enterprise Linux rebuild. You get up to 7 years support.

CentOS, like the Redhat Enterprise distribution it's based upon, is arguably better suited for server roles than Fedora Core. It has a much longer release cycle, with lass drastic changes between updates.

Lots of changes in a desktop build is great; lots of changes on a server build can prove problematic.

I run CentOS, Fedora Core, and SLES boxes and definitely prefer CentOS for its stability and no-nonsense approach.

Hope this helps.
