This is better:

I'm installing gentoo - kernel 2.6.x in a server with the specifications
above. This will be an apache + php 5.0 + mysql 4.1 server. The server
will be instaled on an internal network.

Geisel,

It's unlikely that someone would take the time to analyze your new computer 
system and make blind suggestions. You'd have better luck asking a specific 
question, preferably after doing some research of your own. See 
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html">http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html</a> 


Secondly, extracting some header information from your message:

X-Filtering-Reason: No text/plain message body was present.
X-Filtering-Reason: The message contained data that was of an illegal content
type.
X-Karma: -2


and after briefly scanning your message (in unrendered markup form), here are 
a few suggestions:

- Send your mail in plain text format. Many of the Gentoo developers and users 
on this mailing list can read HTML text without having it rendered, but 
they're more likely to simply send your message on an instantaneous trip to 
the trash; many mail filters will do this automatically (mine included).

- Don't waste message space by sending virtual business cards (the "illegal 
content type" mentioned in the second filtering header). If you need to 
provide information about yourself, add a web address to your signature; save 
us the trouble of looking at data that's of no interest. If someone wants 
more information, they'll search the web or visit the website that you've 
listed in your signature.

- Be concise. Basic information about the computer is useful. A raw dump of 
data, spanning your entire device subsystem, is not. This is also, from a 
security standpoint, potentially unwise.
