What is best to use as a server?

I am thinking about setting up a file server and I have the following options:


G4 gigabit ethernet dual 450 MHz, G4 digital audio 733 MHz (I have a Sonnet SATA card to use a SATA drive with either of these)

G5 dual 2 GHz, G5 dual 2.7 GHz


10.4 server, 10.5 server

Looking for advice on what would be the best setup? Should I use one of the G4s with 10.4, or one of the G5s & which server OS with the G5?
