OK...finally revisiting this re: 'my graphics guy...'

Have made decision to move forward with box outside of firewall.  I want to
learn something new, so I want it to be a unix box.  Which flavor?  Several
of you made recs. in context of prior thread, but I want to start fresh and
gather replies in context of new thread.

Here are a few things I'd like:

1)Unix flavor? as secure as possible 'out of the box'; at the same time,
keeping up-to-date not too difficult.  I'm willing to spend a little bit of
money.  Please include link to source of software, documentation, etc.
2)this box will serve one purpose and one purpose only -- ftp service...what
ftp server?  likewise, am willing to spend some money.
3)be able to run on old Dell PC that's been put out to pasture...most likely
a 300MHZ Pentium with 64 to 128MB ram

Thanks in advance for all replies.
