I would like to setup 2 servers with heartbeat as the HA software and I would like to know which distribution is the easiest use and least expensive. I have heard that Redhat has a cluster managment suite that is GUI based named YAST and it is pretty easy. Any recommendations because I am new and trying to learn linux. Thanks

If you want to use RH you will have to pay for subscription ..i.e. not the best way to learn. I would recommend you get your hands dirty. I.e. try with Ubuntu and haproxy.

It is very easy
