mucking around

Postby Richlife » Tue Mar 25, 2008 4:21 am

hey everyone,
i've got an old celeron 533 gathering dust, and was wondering if i could turn it into a server? (i'm bored...)

i think its got 320Mb ram, 8Gb hard drive, and a 100mbps network card.

how would i go about making it a server? do i need a particular operating system?

if it helps, the current hardware in the house is this:
sattelite broadband modem, printer, and 3 computers (2 XP, and 1 vista) connected to an 8port switch.
