VERY Newbie - Which Linux - web server

I have a intel box ( dual processor etc ).

I am currently running win2k/iis/mssql I am operater for all of this including DNS and Mail server.

I have box and rack space for new server.

What do you recommend for Linux distro??

This will be a web server box only.

I will need to access the box from Win2k environment.

I plan to use mySQL also.

I am sure this question has been asked many, many times. I am willing to do research if you point me to the source.

ok you should use one of those two distros if you are a bit into:
slackware or debian
if you are new to it and have no time to get more into use red hat

for webserver usw apache it comes by default with all three distros above mysql mod for apache is avaible as well as php ... everything you need
