debain system


i have a senario here. i was asked to duplicate one system where it use debian as a web server as well as mail server. this machine host 3 domain, and main domain it host is
while about the mail, it host and when the administrator add new user (adduser) into the system, the user will has a new mail as well as it web address at the page (index.html) will automatically generated under /home/cc/user/html/index.html. the user also could use SSH to connect to the server.
How do i duplicated the setting of this server. i'm intented to use suse 10 instead of debian. any idea how i could possibily do all of that. is it use a script when the admin run "adduser"?
my last questions would be that is it a good idea to use suse? or debian?

First of all, replicate debian usir the package crosshurd.
Second, from what I know, you should configure fetchmail and mutt to make the mail accounts. No experience here whatsoever.
