"RedHat Enterprise" or "Debian".
Instead of RedHat you can choose the free "CentOS" or "WhiteBox".

There is a very good guide to setting up a Debian server here . I also have quite a lot of info on one of my pages . A couple of comments about using X on the server. X can compromise the security of the server and also you can do things in a gui mode without X. I run my own server headless (no keyboard, or mouse) merely by accessing it through ssh using KBear. KBear is an ftp client and gives gui functionality through the network from another box.

Fedora should do fine, but it may not be as stable as Debian Stable or RHEL. You couls use CentOS which is an RHEL clone.
