in reply to OT: Building a small home server

If you don't have $300+, I encourage everyone to slap an extra computer together from spare parts like I did.

    "Firebird" (used as a file server/sometimes workstation by a poor college student)
  • 400 MHz AMD K6-2
  • 450MB RAM
  • Hard Drives
    • 1 1.2 GB (Windows 2000 system)
    • 2 20 GB (Data)
    • 1 40 GB (MP3s and Movies)
  • Has Perl. Haven't installed Apache yet, but I plan on it.

Surprisingly, it works well. It's slow, but it's reliable. (although most of you would rather use Linux or FreeBSD, I'm sure)
