Question New to Linux and I want to setup a server with 5 computers.

I am new to Linux and would like to setup my home network with a server and 5 computers. I am not sure which version of Linux is best. I would like to experiment with utilizing a domain controller and hosting a website/email. What is the bes route for doing this.

Or Debian (would be much easier to start with)... Also you may want to consider Ubuntu server with WebMin.
