    I have old PowerPC 8100/100 gathering dust in my room. Any suggestions on what I should do with my old work horse?

    What hardware upgrade do you recommend, if it is needed at all? And software recommendation? It currently has little over 90Mb RAM, 2Gb HD running OS 8.5.

    I got AppleShare IP latest version, not sure of the number, from MacResQ. It includes file, mail and web servers. It seems to be extremely slow as a file server, however. Maybe I don't have enough RAM, I don't have as much as you.
