Re: Convert Old PC to Linux - Minimal Requirements???



TechieGrl staggered into the Black Sun and said:
PII 400MHz with 128 RAM and currently a 10GB hard drive. I would need
to get a larger hard drive. Is it possible to use this as a file
server? Is it possible to get a larger hard drive for it?

Yes to both questions. You'll want to install something light like Damn
Small Linux or possibly Xubuntu, though. Fileservers don't need much
CPU, they need disk space and decent NICs. HTH,
