Which edition of "fedora" can I use for my intel Pentium Dual Core, E5400, 2.7 GHz, 2mb cache and 1gb ram Desktop..? Can I use it as Server of 10 pcs...?
And also I want to know Fedora 12 is Server Editon or Desktop Edition...?
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.
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.
