Well the distro's themselves are all relatively easy to configure and put on a network. The easiest would probably be redhat.

When you say " trying to setup a webpage for my school" Do you mean you just put some information up through an ISP for students to access? Setup an IntrAnet or internal network for students only to exchange information? or Host a webserver and have your own domain name?.

The first can be done with any disto and an ISP... The second could be done internally without any ISP at all. The third requires registrering a domain, finding a host server, or finding an ISP that will allow you to host your own server. most likely a buisiness acct... all requiring money.

So I would suggest first, identifiy exacly what you are looking for. Then you can find a distro that can fit your needs easier
