HowtoForge has some great setup notes on various distros by a guy called
Falko. The setups all tend to be around using LAMP plus other bits
necessary for a server. For example:

This is a detailed description about how to set up a CentOS 4.4  based
server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server
(SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP
server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.). This tutorial
is written for the 32-bit version of CentOS 4.4, but should apply to the
64-bit version with very little modifications as well... [/quote]
