ISP Startup


I am thinking about starting up an ISP. I am new to linux, but I am told that is the OS of choice for setting up an ISP. My question is, what is the best distro for doing this and what all do I need to set up. I am talking from the time I install the distro to be being able to dial into it from an outside source.

I have it working on Windows 2000 Advanced Server right now, but I would like to move it over to a linux box to be more stable, etc, etc.

If anyone can help I would be eternally greatfull!!

Thanks
Daryll @ DryCan
