With those objectives, I'd suggest Planet CCRMA with
Red Hat 9 or Fedora Core 1 running a 2.4 series
kernel. Fedora Core 2 and the 2.6 kernels are cutting
edge. Either of the former are pretty much no brainer
installations. You will want to spend some time
reading Fernando's documentation. Don't skip over the
sections on system tuning.
