Any of them would be useful for the purpose.   Red Hat 9 has Apache 1.3.   Fedora Core 1 has Apache 2.0.   That might make a difference if you have a specific module you need that isn't yet ported to 2.0.

People seem to like the BSDs for net serving but if you're more familiar with Linux then that's an additional learning curve (tho' not much of one).

Debian and SuSE I haven't used so I don't know which of version of Apache is supplied on each, by default.

I guess it comes to this:   Do you want Linux or FreeBSD, and which version of Apache do you need.  There isn't a whole lot of difference between the Linuxes, except that RH & FC use rpm,   SuSE uses YaST and Debian uses 'apt' for updates.  Administration of the web server is going to be identical for all three.  With which are you the most familiar?
