 If postgresql performance is going to be a concern, concurrency 
considerations with mysql will be even bigger concern. Postgresql can be 
tuned. For achieving good concurrency with mysql, you might have to redesign 
your app.

In general, this list can help you to tune the things. Shouldn't be that big

I would rather vote for RH-AS with postgresql 7.4 devel. Former for it's 
big-app tunings out of the box and later for it's performance.

Of course best way is to try it out yourself.  Even vanilaa distro. on good 
hardware should be plenty good..
