The only issue I have run into with different versions of Linux is the 32bit vs. 64bit versions. Since you have standardized on one distribution partner I don't anticipate any problems save that of the 32 vs 64 bit issues.

I personally always go with the latest, greatest I can get, mostly for security patches and improvements.

So I have two different levels of Red Hat that i can install on a PC.
I'm licensed to both copies, or will be when I register them. I have
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES Version 4, and Red Hat Linux 9. I want to
use the PC (being converted from Windows) as a test box for things
like web services, PHP, stuff like that...playing around.The PC is a
reasonably equipped box...don't have the specs in front of me, but it
ran XP pretty snappily. I'll be talking to a Mac and an i for stuff.

Suggestions as to which version? I'm thinking upgrade
capability/licensing in terms of being able to get to the latest
