I have an old PC that is only gathering dust in the attic, and now a perfect opportunity to convert it into a web server has arrived. As there is not going to be much 'serving' going on, I also think it might be a good idea to use it as a file server as well. System specs: CPU: Intel Pentium D 920 @ 2.8GHz MB: Asus P5LP-LE (don't bother looking for it on Asus website, it's not there) RAM: 1GB 133MHz *wince* HD: 320GB something... GPU: nVidia GeForce 6200SE PSU: Generic crap I did mention it was old, right? As I said, at the moment it is only gathering dust. I am thinking of installing Ubuntu Server or Desktop on it, then installing Apache and a file server (NAS). I have tried Ubuntu Server before, but I gave up on it when I ended up with a very limited command prompt. I have used Ubuntu Desktop many times before and use it on another PC in the house. Although as it is an old PC, the more performance squeezed out the better. In the future I plan to upgrade the entire thing, maybe starting with a new HD and moving on to a complete rebuild.
