Server versions ie RedHat enterprise usually come with support, the install
is different better doco the list goes on. There is no real difference
between a free distro such as red hat 9 and say enterprise other than you
may need to do more work in getting things to work or to keep the system

Thanks for the answers,

Are there certain extra's for payed distros if they run as server, or 
are the distro's only extra featured in terms of configuration.
In other words: are free versions as stable as their costly 
counterparts? Can they handle the same Samba-loads of 200 users. Will 
free versions go on their knees if those 200 log in in the same minute? 
(if hardware is ideal -> gigabit backbone, hp proliant server 3GHz, 1Gig 
Why should I want to buy a server-version if I can get a distro for free...
