First don't misunderstand what the distro are
Mandriva, Open-Suse, Ubuntu, Fedora are not suitable for server
they don't have long term support, and they are in fact experimental distro for others one.

For Server, IMHO the only that are reliable are :
Debian, Ubuntu LTS, Mandriva Enterprise Server (MES), CentOs, RHEL
Some others may be also a good choice : Gentoo, Slackware.

about packages in those distro :
Debian, Ubuntu LTS, MES are ok
CentOs, RHEL : I'm working on it
Gentoo no problem since you build everything ;)
Slackware I don't know enough to say
