The most popular ones for Linux seem to be PostgreSQL and MySQL. I
used PostgreSQL first, and it seemed to be plain sailing - I'm not as
familiar with MySQL, but it does seem to be well-supported, and I expect
that that's probably the best recommendation. Easy to integrate with
perl, apache and stuff, and I believe there are MS ODBC drivers
available for it, too.
