Debian Etch runs my personal server, but suggestions on which to use can really vary. Most "desktop" distributions can be easily configured to run as well as the best. If it's going to serve a business website where downtime is not an option, I'd choose a BSD. If you're only going for personal or semi-private use, I'd do Debian or Slackware.
