selecting a debian version

Which product should I select between your “Debian 3.0 r2 source” and “Debian 3.0 r2 Binary i386”, if I’m going to use it as a web hosting OS? The research that I’ve read said to get the “binary” version. Does the “Binary” version include the source code like the “Debian 3.0 r2 source” version? What other factors should I consider in making my selection?

Thanks for your help.

Binary is what you need to actually run the app's.Source is generally only needed for guys that want to modify or compile themselves for whatever reason,plus the source has to be distributed by whoever distributes binaries.
