I've got an old, obsolete PC that I just hooked up on the opposite side of my desk.
I've been thinking of things I could use it for, for quite a while now.

The specs are nothing great; as I said, it is obsolete.

2.0 GhzCPU
512 MB RAM
Radeon 9550
100 GB HD space
Small IBM case


Is it possible to host a website or two off of this machine? Nothing big, but can it be done?

If so, which operating system should I use?
Which programs, techniques, etc. would you suggest?

Linux with Apache. I would use bash.
If it is at your house your ISP may not permit you to host websites...

I run Vista on Less. Except for the ram. I got 1Gb for ram now but only had 768mb previously and an Athlon 1.4ghz
