ME? I would go with 98SE over ME. 2000 is probably the best choice.

Well 2000 has several different versions. There is Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and DataCenter Server. So any one of them can network. I would say dont go for nothing more than Server. DCS is only available thru M$ for high end servers.

Well that all depends. Are you sure that the hardware you have installed will be compatable with Linux? That is the only reason i havent jumped to Linux yet. That along with minimal game support.

I think that 2000 would be your best bet. It is very easy to configure for a network.
