Oh, and about that "which distro will work" thing...

FC is primarly a desktop system. Gentoo can be anything. (

Your problem, currently, is booting at all. My guess is it's hardware based.
On gentoo, you can compile your own kernel, which is usually a lot newer than that of the FC distro. It might just work with your hardware.
but with FC you can have linux commands too :P just press ctrl + alt + F1 then you will getting in the prompt,

BTW Gentoo can be installed on my PC and then moved to the server? or not?

My guess is that this move from your PC to your server is the cause of trouble. Install on the server directly, and you'll have a lot less trouble. Else you have to compile for a different host and stuff. Kernel will not run.

edit: and about linux commands (the console) in FC: all distros have that. The only thing is that FC runs X by default and it sucks up memory and processor power that your server will need but not have. The distros we proposed are built from the ground up by the user and so they do not consume as much unnececary resources your server will undoubtedly need.

VectorLinux is almost as easy to install as FC or Redhat, but not quite as pretty. It's also very very minimalist, so there aren't six pages of packages to pick through, and you can install pretty much everything and be fine. After install, vasm makes configuring stuff like network, services, and whatever else you like, fairly easy.
