Using Debian (Lenny) here all update to date and such and I'm looking to setup an IRC server (I've done it before)
Just wondering whats the easiest to setup. I'm looking for something thats also updated a lot and that has lots and lots of features :)

Personally, I like InspIRCd which is easily modular and has API support.
http://wiki.inspircd.org/Comparison_Of_Features shows a comparison of features and a table of what services packages it supports.

That's pretty vague as said Meder but i would recommend Unreal IRCD.
EDIT: For the services i would consider using Anope

Looks like Unreal IRCD became InspIRCd.
IRCServices eventually became Anope that then became:
atheme-services. See bug numbers: #424844 #646607
Hopefully by the time you read this I'll have some pkgs posted for atheme-services.

We've been pretty happy with
ircd-hybrid server and the
hybserv services collection; it's relatively widely used and has some useful modules. It's also still under active development.
