Using SUSE 10 as a low volume web/email/file server

I have a system at home that I want to install Linux on and configure to be a web/email/file server. There likely won't be a lot of traffic. Is SUSE a good distro choice, or should I use something like Debian? I won't be installing GNOME or KDE, this will be strictly a CLI system.

Suse can work perfectly fine as a dedicated server (just like any Linux distro), so if you are comfortable using and administering it, then go for it.

Ever seen this?

I came across this interesting article, seems like a heavy server setup is possible so less than that is not impossible to be done

Let us know how it went :-)
