centos 4.x using vmware server will fill th needs nicely.  You have the 
long term lifespan of the RHEL branch and your virtualization taken care 
of in one fell swoop and you can't beat the price..<G>

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
