re distro - any, so long as it's good. Use the standard mysql/pg distros
that come with it, to stay as standard as possible.
apps : I suggest chisels forum app (name of which completely escapes my
frazzled morning brain) as one possible.
It would also be good to have some simple demo multilingual app in there, as
this aspect is neglected by just about all frameworks. It's as easy in cat
as any other I think, but it takes a while to realise that for a newb.
