    I had a few questions regarding the Early 2008 MacPro & a 1st Gen 2.66 MacPro Quad.

    I wanted to use one of them as a Web server to host my website on; is there a way to do this easily?
    installing a specific application; control panel for the website and setting up DNS? this system will remain up of course 24/7. (im thinking the 2.66 Quad will do those duties)

    If not; is there a way to use one of them as a LAN Server? perhaps the 2.66 can be a ultimate/main back up solution to my 2.8 8-Core machine and other systems i add to my network? (ie; iMac and MacBookPro/ Macbook air) & manage them via that system?

    Sure, Mac OS X comes with built-in Apache server and OS X Server lets you set it up as a server. Quite easy.
