    Hi,

    The server on which i work had RH9 till last month... now we have got a new server and wish to install Cpanel on it...
    What OS shud i choose... CentOS, FC4, FreeBSD ??
    What is the best option, considering that the server will be used only as a Web , Mysql DB and Mail server..

    We may also consider buying EL4 but not in very near future...
    Please comment

    Freebsd is very different from the linux variants. You will need to learn alot of new commands and syntax for old commands.
