I would recommend Redhat. Mandrake is based on redhat with features added on to make it
more newbie friendly and since you have unix experience you don't need it.

I've been using redhat linux at work for several years along side with Solaris 8 server and its
been working well. It's been used as webpage server, fileserver, weather data processing, IDS
and mailserver.

Also I find redhat to have fast security updates which are easy to find at

Reach out and /usr/bin/touch someone
