If you're going to use it on the internet, I suggest to get an more uptodate distro. RedHat has stopped support for RH9, so no new security updates etc.

Any distro is suitable for running a web server.

Are you planning on using the machine for anything else, or just a web server. My personal choice would be Debian 3.1, which is the current stable Debian release. I suggest that you use Apache2 rather than Apache 1.3, since it is newer.
