I am working in a new private ISP. The technical stuff are installing Linux Gentoo, I am not sure if it is the best for servers.

You can try Redhat Enterprise Edition 4 or Fedora core 5 or CentOS.

Debian, SUSE are strong. But Gentoo, Ubuntu, Mandriva are easy to work.

I think that REDHAT is the best, they are just working on servers.

Use a distribution which gives option for updates and portability. Some distribution can access windows partitions directly from linux.

some has multi language support.

some has driver for most of the hardware.

Select based on your requirement.

Why don't you try Solaris? There is no cost on using it, since no license fees are required (even for commercial applications).

If you are looking for support / maintenance packages as well, then you should find that it is very competitively priced against other commercial Linux systems (e.g. Redhat).

Of course there is no need to mention that Solaris is rock-stable it is a proven system.

There are other benefits too, such as excellent support for Java development tools (you can expect that much from Sun)

I use Fedora Core for servers at home and work.
I have very good experince of the i386 version.
The x86_64 version has caused me a lot of trouble lately (FC5)
