Best distro for dns/webserving?


Hi everyone...I'm new. I was wondering if there was a specific distro that works best for DNS and Apache? I've been considering using Clark Connect, but still not sure. I would really like to host my business from home and get rid of my hosting service

Thanks for any help you can give...I'm pretty familiar with just about all flavors of Linux distros (or at least the distro they are derived from).

EDIT>>>
BTW, I currently have a quintuple boot on my test machine, which will be my webserver...

Win2k Pro
Fedora Core 2
PC Linux OS
Mepis
Slackware

Using Grub for bootloader.

I don't think there is really any distro that can run Apache and Bind any better than the others.

The real question is what is the better distro for a server. And you base this on reliability, stability, efficiency, and security.

The best choices for a Linux server are Slackware and Debian. And since I see you already have Slackware experience, I would chose that.

Yeah...that's why I've been leaning toward slackware or clark connect.
