easiest version of linux for subversion

From: <cto_at_object-universe.com>

My company is trying to set up a Linux server
specifcally to hold a subversion source code
repository, and therefore at the moment we have
complete freedom. All that is set is the (somewhat
underpowered) box we intend to use. I will admit that
we all are primarily Windows programmers although I
did put myself through grad school as a unix sysadmin
(I am not admitting how long ago that was).

I know that subversion is compatible with many
versions of Linux. I was wondernig given an open
choice whether there are some that would be especially
easy to install. The target hardware is a 300 MHz
Pentium II with 128 MB of RAM. Our current source
code repository is also somewhat small but we are a
distributed programming group and trying to stay in
sync via emailed zip files is not working very well.
I also have a local SourceSafe but, to be blunt, even
though I have used it extensively it is not my
favorite system. We desperately need a more powerful
system available to all our programmers.

Thanks for any help. Please copy me directly on
