Dear Sir,
My experience has been with redhat and debian. Freebsd I have not much 
experience with and therefore cannot comment.
   Debian and redhat have different philosophies. Redhat being a 
commercial company is under pressure to release new versions of its os 
on a regular basis. Debian is a volunteer, non-commercial organization 
that releases software when "it is ready". For the latest and greatest 
software choose redhat (now fedora) but for stable well tested software 
choose debian. The install of debian is somewhat more difficult for 
inexperienced users but the admin of debian machines is much simpler. 
Evaluate your needs honestly then repost and then we could be of more 
help  bye for now and good luck syl
