    I think it should be centos but question is 4.x or 5.x?
    Will 5.x work with cpanel? What advantages there are by running 5.x instead 4.x?

    At this moment i only work on rhe - didnt used centos yet.

    Based off my interactions with customers, I have noticed CentOS is extremely popular so I assume if it's popular it is probably pretty decent.

    CentOS/RHEL 5 will work with cPanel 11 but not cPanel 10.

    I've got many servers running Fedora Core, and a couple running CentOS. I've had no trouble with either branch, but prefer FC6 currently over CentOS 5.0 as my clients are very database intesive and I like to use second drive for database partition and reiserfs for that which CentOS does not support. As far as your experiance with RHEL I don't think you will have any learning curve to overcome with either branch.

    CentOS and RHEL are almost identical and can be used interchangeably so you won't find much of a difference if you use CentOS. Fedora is more of a testing ground for RHEL so I would recommend CentOS over Fedora.
