What OS to chose

Hi

We have a storage server that we are about to setup,
Supermicro X8DTI-LNF
6GB DDR3-1333
LSI SAS 9211-8I
36 Western Digital RE4-GP 2TB SATA
2 Western Digital RE4 500GB SATA

My Question is what would be the best OS to use on this system,
keeping in mind the MB uses ICH10R which seems to be a problem
for my first choice Ubuntu Server 10.04 (LTS) 64bit.

Thanks in advance

Sorry forgot to mention,
we have Windows, MAC & Linux workstations,
all of which will need read/write access to the server

Thanks

Many thanks

Does Ubuntu 11 support ICH10R?

also not sure if the LSI controller is supported,
there are drivers for RedHat and Suse.
