Is CentOS 4.1 i386 a good choice to run? Does Apache, PHP, MySQL and exim run well with CentOS 4.1 i386? If not, what is a good version of CentOS to run that has no problems?

I'm not sure the difference between i686 and i386...Which would be better for an AMD64 2800 and which is stable with everything?

Firstly, have some patience...

Secondly, such a machine it would be i686... however the architectures only come in x86_64, i386 etc. so you are after i386.

CentOS 4.x runs better than 3.x, has less overheads and in general is a big improvement over 3.x.

centos with cpanel is the best combo, but make sure that yum is properly configued. else cpanel will find it hard to get its package dependencies.

CentOS 4.1 and cPanel make a great combo in my experiance -very stable, plus it follows the de facto standard for webservers IMO (the de facto standard being redhat)

note: the views in this post are purely those of me, not of cPanel, Inc.

Centos is a good choice as long as you don't start with 3.x and let it auto upgrade to 4.x. We bought a server and that happened before we got the box setup, it made for some funky issues with Cpanel. We have been testing Trustix/Cpanel and it is running extremely well, a very good option for those considering it.
