    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.

    Well, for a simple file server, all you need is Windows of most any flavor. You might consider what you intend this "server" to be used for.
