1. Easy for a noobie to play around with.
2. Easy to obtain Windows network shares via Linux.
3. Good for setting up a FTP server.
4. Good for setting up a HTTP server.
5. Good for setting up a proxy server.

You could make a LAMP server. Any distro can do what you want, you just have to pick the one you like best.
