Question Distro Recommendation

I'm looking for a Linux distro with the following

* Kernel support for QoS and/or fair queuing
* Kernel support for Netfilter (iptables)
* New versions of iptables (ex 1.2.11) and iproute2 (ex 20041019-3)
* Perl
* sudo (so webserver - mostly not running by root - can load the shaper rules which needs root privileges)

Can anyone make a recommendation?

Any modern distro has all those functions. Go to DistroWatch and pick one that looks good to you
