Installed both, and both are quite good. RH is ELF now, which may
or may not be an advantage. Debian gives you a nice, clean system
and allows you to do your own configuring with a minimum of fuss.
RH comes with more bells and whistles in this respect. You may want 
to undo some of their cleverness, or perhaps not. If you want a very
configured setup right out of the box, there is also Caldera (RH with
something extra).
