I tried matching my shared hosting provider (he.net), and it was impossible
because they use an internally-customized Linux distribution based on Slackware
In any case, my web development machine is an Intel Advanced/AS motherboard with
a Pentium 166/MMX, 96MB of RAM, and ~5MB hard drive. I have another with 48 MB
that I use as a CVS server. I'm running Apache 1.3, mod_perl 1.29, Perl 5.8.7,
MySQL 4, PHP (4?), and it works just fine. I ssh into the boxes for
administration and development. I run them headless, and can connect them into
a KVM when needed.
I'd just keep the hardware as-is, do a minimal install (without X Windows), and
add the specific packages you want (Apache, etc.). You can always throw money
at it later if needed.
