    Try Debian or Slackware, they are supposed to be good for a server, it's not easy but it's great if you want to learn.

    NetBSD. Even though that is not Linux, it will get the job done for that. There are a variety of distros to choose from. The fact that your specs are not much means nothing at all as LSA said Linux will run on anything.
