Thanks for all the responses. It helped.

I looked into Debian because it was so popular, and I like it, but one of my
important goals is to be able to port to a dedicated server, and there just
does not to seem to be too many people doing it. That being said, you Debian
folks might think I am crazy for going with SuSE 9.1, but I am banking on
the fact that it is going to be popular, and there will be dedicated hosting
operations. I also need support, for now. I don't have enough time to do
anything that's not necessary. I tried the Live Demo from SuSE which boots
off a CD, and everything on my new server was recognized no problem. I liked
the package manager, and at least for now the on-line support. I am going to
give it a go. Hopefully, in a month here I will have some SuSE and Mapserver
installation docs, along with a demo of some of my work.

Thanks a lot!
