[suse-security] request for opinions: SuSE 9 secure as a web server?

I'm planning to serve web pages from my personal box (family pictures and the
like), running SuSE 9 stock with all patches. The machine will be handed all
port 80 (or whatever port I decide to use) requests from my linksys router/
firewall, therefore being completely exposed on that port. I'll also be
letting ssh through.
So my question is: how dangerous is this? How secure is a SuSE 9 box (with no
tweaks or anything, just configured everthing with yast). I'm asking your
opinion as to whether SuSE is considered reasonably safe for what I have in
mind or if I should look for other options. And perhaps if there are simple
steps I can take to increase my chances of not being cracked.
Just some more info: in my internal network I'm running NFS, so can't use the
suse firewall (since it blocks that service). I'm also running rsync.
