    Linux distro servers, use Debian or Slackware, Debian definetly owns the market share of Linux servers out there. NetBSD is good, but no better then Debian, remember a server is only as good as it's admin.

    I'd use Debian over Solaris on sparc hardware for alot of things..

    ps Suse, Mandrake, Redhat really are gay for servers

    FreeBSD is very stable and It runs Linux binary files.
    Try it.

    On a P120, It should be able to *almost* handle anything if you have 64mb of ram...

    The best linux to run i think is slackware......but i would highly recomend runing a BSD box over linux anyday.....if you dont have multiple processers and dont need java run OpenBSD...hella secure. But if you need java or have need for smp run freeBSD
    I think generaly speaking freeBSD and OpenBSD are more secure then your genral linux box.....I belive OpenBSD hasn't had a remote exploit in like 4 years on the default install....
