No. Debian is fine. I used to use Etch but is now on Lenny. Doesn't matter.

Apache, PHP, build tools (as mkisofs etc) and the usual minor stuff.

I think it is so rare we get a new TS-O-Matic, and th TS-O-Matric
software has changed in between that there isn't a formal guide.
However, Trevor (the author of TSoM) a few days ago (less than a week)
gave instructions for a new german TSoM. Try to search that one. If
you can't find it, I'll try to dig it out from my messy inbox :-)
In that mentioned post of Trevors, there is also the download link to
the TSoM software.
Specific TSoM questions you can mail directly to me or Trevor
