If you are planning this for a server, you should consider stability as one of
your primary factors. Going with Breezee preview would not fit this
requirement, as there will be changes in the final release. I've also heard
that Breezee preview does have some issues that are getting worked out before
the final release. (consider that hearsay though - I'm not sure what the
issues were and can't remember the source of the comment).
So, I would favor a distro that's slightly older over one that is still in
beta. If you REALLY want stability for a server, you could take a look at
Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or SuSe Linux Enterprise Server. These are both
targeted at servers. The downside is that they tend to be a generation or
two older - but that's not too big a deal when it comes to servers.
I'm not sure what would be needed to get your NIC and sound running (do you
need sound on a server?) with Kubuntu (well, through their methods at least).
But, adding hardware, or tweaking settings after the install is pretty
common. I wouldn't be surprised if it's as simple as opening the KDE control
panel (or the equivalent if you choose a gnome interface), select the NIC and
assign the IP data to it. It's the part where the NIC gets detected that can
be a little troublesome...
