Question Newbie looking for linux distro


Hey everyone

I am looking for a linux distro which is just a simple web server (apache 1.3/2, MySQL, FTP, maybe SMTP etc) and nothing else. Command line is fine, i will be able to learn what i need to, but i would like it as small as possible.

Does anyone know of a distro like this? simple install -> run -> serv?

Thanks for your help!

Debian, use netinstall, it's under 200 MB ISO image. If you mean it, it is.
