Web Server Addition Reccomendations

Server Addition Strategy Recommendations
Environement is W2K3 LAN behind Cisco PIX & Cisco Layer 3 Switch with T-1 leased line access.
I am to add a server that will be:
A) Web Server (& host the Organization's IntraNet Site too)
B) FTP Server (accessible to internal & external hosts)
C) Streaming Media Server (current Web Site Host won't store video for our web site, we have to put it on our own server to make multi-media content available to them?)
D) Managed by yours truly whose LINUX experience is a single SYMANTEC SPAM appliance that has it's own browser based GUI for dummies interface
Currently have only 2 M.S. W2K3 Servers, one is DC, other Exchange 2003 Server, both behind firewall on internal LAN with 80 XP workstations.
A LINUX based web server placed in DMZ would be most cost effective solution & most secure?
The new server would not need any integration with Active Directory to perform the above listed roles?
There aren't any LINUX server solutions available that offer GUI management consoles?
