I just need a basic OS, doesn't need to have all the the flashy stuff.

Basically, just a shell and the ability to connect to a network and access the internet. I figured, I'd just end up getting a stripped down linux distro, but which one would be best?

I dont know which distro you want, per say, but what you should look for is a commant-promped only, server stile distro (like DOS, but MUCH better). My boss uses one for his Linux mail server.
