web server / web site.

Hi all, Could someone direct me in the right direction.   I'm not full bottle on computers, but i believe I can just keep my head above water most of the time. (Everything but programing)  What i'm tring to achieve is to run a web site from my computer.   I have been playing with windows XP PRO but seem to be having probs with Appache, Xoops and everything else. So Im looking at a different alterntive.   After a lot of seraching , it seems that Appache , Xoops, ect are a lot more Linux friendly. Am i Right here????If i am right in saying that ( I hope so) what version, type of linux should i be looking at? Any help on this would be very much appreacted.The system I'm trying to setup as the web server is a old Pent II. And if posible to have at least 50 SLL conections.  Not sure if that would help?Cheers Adam
