    Hello I am getting the Intel Xeon 3060 Dual Core Conroe server from ThePlanet and I was wondering which OS would be the most suitable for a Cpanel WebHosting server between:

    CentOS Enterprise Linux, Version 4 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Redhat Enterprise Linux - x64, Version 4 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Version 4 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    CentOS Enterprise Linux - x64, Version 4 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Centos Enterprise Linux - x86_64, Version 5 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Version 5 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux - x86_64, Version 5 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)
    Centos Enterprise Linux, Version 5 - Mo. Fee/Setup Fee: ($0.00/$0.00)

    What are the differences between RedHat and CentOs and between 32bits and 64bits version.

    Thank you!

    CentOS is a free rebuild of RHEL that's 100% binary compatible. You can find more info on it at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS

    Personally I'd choose CentOS 5.

    How much RAM will be available on the machine? If < 1 GB, then go with a 32bit install. 64bit software has higher RAM overhead.

    CentOS 5, either way, is a good choice.
