    Whoo, old threads. :D

    Anyways, when I was using it:

    Duron 1.1GHZ
    Asus A7V
    640MB SDRAM
    Intel 82557
    SIS 8MB AGP with tv-out
    10GB HDD
    LS120 floppy
    Basic 52x samsung CDROM
    ATX Desktop case

    OS: Server2003 enterprise. (Yes, was a beta testing machine).

    But I havn't even booted it for several months now. Using a netgear wgt624 just fine instead for my current needs.

    Some of those servers are not very crappy, lol! :cool: Well, i consider anything under a pIII and 512mb of ram as crappy, and above it isn't.

    ATM, i am using my nat router built into my billion 5100 to do my basic serving needs, Internet, NAT, DHCP, and port blocking. It's pretty crappy compared to even a very low spec linux setup, such as a p166mmx, 32mb ram and 2gb hdd. :upset: If only i could get it working properly in a brige setup ...... :cry:

    I can't wait to get my server back online, and possible equip it with 1/2 TB or more, as my 1/2 TB i have between 2 pc's atm is almost full. My Xbox backup games and DVD's are sucking up so much damn space. Server is a dual AXP 2000, 512mb Reg ECC DDR, raid and ata pci cards. I just don't know if it's a good idea to cramp say 5 x 200gb hdd's in the case. It might be time for a bigger case. :D

    Cheers

    Home servers - mainly test boxes but over time i change each one-

    Brabus-
    Celeron Tualatin 1.1@1.47
    512MB of 133mhz Sdram
    Asus CUSL2-C (modded for the tualatin)
    Various hard drives depending on needs

    OS - 2003 server, 2000 server, IPCop, Smoothwall, Clark Connect, E-Smith and Debian when required.

    Tual-
    Celeron Tualatin 1.3@1.3
    512 MB of 133mhz Sdram
    Asus TUSL2-C
    Various hard drives depending on needs

    OS - 2003 server, 2000 server, IPCop, Smoothwall, Clark Connect, E-Smith and Debian when required.

    Viapowa-
    Celeron Tualatin 1.3@1.3
    512MB of 133 mhz Sdram
    Asus TUSI-M
    Various hard drives depending on needs

    OS - 2003 server, 2000 server, IPCop, Smoothwall, Clark Connect, E-Smith and Debian when required.

    These all run various OS with a number of nics in each one to do testing to clients and also keeps me amused and also for a better understanding of software packages. They have old video cards GF4MX etc and all run well. I prefer the 2 intel boxes for ease of use and also good driver support. The via chipset in the TUSI-M is also pretty good and is well supported for drivers etc.

    Just recently got a Shuttle SFF with a 875 Chipset, 1GB of ram and a P4 2.4C in it, this is running an evaluation copy of SBS 2003 and again is a test box for a client. These boxes run headless in a cupboard and are frequently pulled apart and put back together with different hardware.

    My machine is my firewall/everything else machine.
    Mainly because I'm too cheap for anything more.
    It sucks, but hey, it does the job.

    P4 1.6
    Running XPSP2
    512MB PC133 SDRAM
    1x40 & 1x80GB seagates

    It stores a whole lotta shit.

    Connected to the intarweb through my iBurst access bridge modem :D
