Personally, I would recommend Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS (Server Version or Alternate
Install CD)

It is easier to configure and most of its packages are more up to date
compared to CentOS or Red Hat.

If you are not really familiar with Linux yet then if you can get the
Alternate Install CD that will be helpful.
