Anything that supports ACLs.  :)

ext3 is always a reasonable choice but for a server you may prefer xfs 
or jfs. The latter were both developed for big Unix boxes and have been 
in the kernel for a passable length of time. Any of the the three should 
be fine for normal use on a server however. ReiserFS is also good, but 
has some limitations that may make it less than ideal for a server.
