What kind of a server? A file server, email server, web server, ftp server, media server?

Plus, it just sounds silly to ask for a tutorial for a 'customized' anything. How does someone else know what you want to do?

How hardcore do you want to go? I'll go by difficulty, further down being more difficult but more rewarding.

Ubuntu / Fedora / OpenSUSE - Easy starting distros. They normally come with Apache (Web Server) and have a graphical environment that's easy to set up.

CentOS / Redhat / GhostBSD / Chakra - More enterprise class distros, still GUI based but more robust and built for more security

OpenBSD / FreeBSD / Gentoo / Slackware / Arch - No default GUI, build everything from the ground philosophy, requires a lot of patience in learning. The most difficult to learn but also the least abstracted and most rewarding to comprehend.

I know it's a bit of a throw together, and to be fair some of those aren't Linux, but BSD based.

OpenBSD was more or less what I started with, and it forced me to understand everything from mounting to manual configurations. It was great for learning, but not practical for a normal internet browsing computer. I still have it running as a server.

Fair warning: I had nightmares when I first started, going straight to OpenBSD is like jumping off a cliff and hoping you grow wings.

I have a series on there starting with basics of html.

It also depends on what type of site you want to create. If you're looking to make a database driven site then I'd recommend going with LAMP (linux, apache, mysql, php). You need this if you want your site to have comments, users, dynamic blog posts or any kind of CMS.

It's easy to set up on most distros mentioned by Lemur.
