Lenny or Etch

First what is the difference between the two? Which one is best for running a server (I currently running etch w/o a desktop). Which one is best for normal for personal computing?

Stable (currently Etch) for servers, either for "normal" computing.

Normally you'd run stable on a server, but I've been running Lenny (currently testing, soon stable) on my server for quite some months now without any issues.

Lenny is going to be released in a few months. You'll skip a big upgrade if you start with Lenny.

Only bug fixes are going into Lenny right now.

Is it a domain name server?

Because when I go to that link, it says that domain is available.

If it is that you have a lot of mysq errors showing but the site does look intricate.

As far as upgrading, you may as well wait. When Lenny is "released" they will put out guides for the upgrades as well as any warnings.
