    Get Mandrake if you're a newbie.

    I've never touched Fedora, so I can't really help you there.

    sounds like you have a currupt kernel, but redhat is a great version of it, go with that.

    Debian is probably the easiest Linux for a newbie. apt-get owns all :D

    This server runs Redhat Enterprise.. Get yourself a set of boot CD's for Debian.. the install is pretty simple. Do yourself a favour and run console only until you know you way around. Then worry about X Windows.
