Well... what kind of criteria are you looking for? Webserver, fileserver, etc.

Well, OS X will take less work to get you a webserver, but Gentoo will probably be faster. (You will have slightly more space for web pages, but I doubt it is a huge difference on a G5 ;-))

EDIT: Oh, and if you want 3d acceleration or anything, stay with OS X. They don't really exist on newer ppcs. (but I doubt that is too important for a web server.)
