Currently the Fedora line there is only one release really, the latest being Fedora core 6. In the next release, they are spliting it in to a desktop line and a server line. But, yes, just Fedora Core 6 will work. During the install when you go through packages, theres an option to select sever stuff and if you look at the bottom of that screen theres and option to custom now. If you choose that, then you will on the next window, have the option to choice the different apps besides just the stock ones. Fedora is also pretty easy to use.
