VaKo Posted November 27, 2006 Share Posted November 27, 2006 I've managed to acquire a bunch of computers, and now I need to work out what to do with them. I have 3 machines which I cannot work out what to do with. You got any ideas? Bare in mind that I have a P4 Intel Desktop running XP pro and will soon be getting a second for linux, and a windows 2k3 file server. 1: Dual P3 500Mhz, 1GB ECC PC133 SDRAM, 1x36GB & 1x18GB SCSI disks Not sure what to do with this one, it was running as a webserver but I think it can do more. Maybe this: http://www.howtoforge.com/openvz_centos4.4 But ideally in the long term I'd like it to do more than just be a webserver, although its quite old its still a good system in a classic car type of way. Anybody got any ideas? 2: Celeron 733mhz, 192MB SDRAM 10GB IDE Low powered, ubuntu 6.10 runs like a dog although xubuntu works fine. Kubuntu had xorg running at 43% idle. lol. Despite its lack of power, its extremely quite and runs very cool, so I'm using it as a web server at the moment. Running FreeBSD 6.1. Anyone know of a free apache control panel like ISPconfig that works on freeBSD? 3: 2 Working AMD Athlon XP's (one 2200+ and one 1600+), 1 working motherboard, 1 stick of DDR, a battery powered 10mbit Ethernet hub, 2x16mb flash cards, 3 ethernet NIC's, 8 PCI modems, 3 floppy drives, a baggie full of misc screws and jumpers, a parallel port zip drive, 2 ATX cases, 1 PSU, a pci S3 graphics card, a geforce 2 with a heatsink superglued to the gpu (good or bad?) and a soundblaster pci card. No idea... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
