Which Linux should I start with?

Hi

I am more proficient in Windows based, however when come to Linux, I am totally confused.

In order to build a low cost or "free" Linux Server equipped with DNS, DHCP, Firewall, VPN Server, RAID Capable, Dynamic DNS, Remote Access, WEB etc..

What should I use? And how and where to start from as in the selecting the appropriate applications.

Can I say, download a free Kernel such as Mandriva Free 2010 and addon other apps like Apache for WEB, or BIND for DNS and integrate them together to function like a Server?

Hope you can enlightened me on this.

Thanks

Alvyn
