Subject: [Snort-users] Linux recommendations

I have been using RHEL5 x86_64 quite well up until the last 
batch of Snort upgrades, starting with, when RHEL5 
was no longer a viable platform (the SnortSam mods were the 
first issue, and then there was 2.9.0). I know, there are 
additions that can be made to RHEL5 to make 2.9.0/ 
work, but then the "just run yum" feature no longer will work 
for the mods, and SnortSam's requirements with the whole 
autoconf/libtool issue mean that I can't use RHEL5 at all. 
So, unless I want to hold out for RHEL6, I have to start 
looking for a Linux platform replacement.

The hardware I'm using is a 4-core Intel Xeon 3.20GHz, 8GB, 
and a RAID 0 disk arrangement. I've been eying Fedora 14, but 
it is really geared more toward the desktop world than the 
server world.

So, what recommendations can I solicit from the Snort user community?
