Pretty much any old SD card would do. I have this one:
By far the most popular OS for Rasperry Pi is Raspbian (a Debian
derivative). There is a lot more third party software available for this.
But there is also Pidora (a Fedora variant) which I have successfully
installed and tested.
I currently have an older Pi model B in service as my Bacula storage
server, with an external 4TB USB drive for online backups, plus a USB
enclosure that allows swapping drives to use for archival backups. Works
great. Pi's have lots of uses.
