I am not very familiar with Linux management, I am familiar to installation, did a few many years ago, Corel, Red Hat and recently Suse.

I am interested in implementing an FTP server for our corporation for remote users and customers, the server will be located behind our Cisco Pix firewall. In the future we would also use it in conjunction with Windows SharePoint Services.

I would really appreciate any advice and recommendation on flavor to use, i would like some thing that is available for free download and that can be installed and up and running with minimal difficulty and with low management overhead and this VERY secure. Also any hardware recommendation would be appreciated; I currently have an old Micron Netframe server dual PII with 10K SCSI drives, that is sitting around with lot of disk space.

Any advice would be really appreciated and any links that I can read up on also.

Best Regards,
