I have an old dell 350mhz and I've been thinking about popping a few new hard drives in it and having it act as a network attached storage machine. I thought a little bit more and I guess I could turn it into a server. I was just curious what sorts of things that I could use this for that would be useful. I currently have a mbp and I'm at a university so I'm not as free to do what I would like as a home network but I've already cleared having a server. I guess this post is for a brainstorming place for interesting or practical uses for a low power server for a more advanced mac user. (I would definitely install unix I think instead of windows.) Would I have to have a monitor for it or could I do a lot of the monitoring from a separate computer? PS- Like one idea: sometimes I download big files and I have to leave my laptop on. Could I have a server do all that work of the downloading and then transfer it back? Or what about having it act as a print server?
