CPU=233MHz AMD (socket 7) - I might have a 400MHz somewhere..
Mem=64Mb pc100 (Dimms) min
Graph=16Mb Banshie 2 or NvNti 32Mb
I might also dual install win98se to run some old games.
My question is what is the best possible way to set-up a network to go through this PC to access the net (full internet support)?
My current network is:
Desktop running win2000pro (used as server for file and data storage).
Laptop running winXPhome / Mandrake 9.2 (used as test unit and mobile demonstrations)
HP 10/100 network printer
All connected via a 10/100 Ethernet HUB, pre set IP addresses for all. Current Internet access is via a software firewall protected software proxy server (on main desktop).
If you need more info, please ask. Please keep in mind a low budget...

I might go for that, could I configure this unit to handle mail too. That is > could this unit that will connect to the net, be configured to send and retrieve emails and then my network PC's snd/rcv from the server?
I am also concidering another unit (prob a 1.4GHz) to be used as the main data server for the network, is Linux a good choice for this too. Some terminals will have to be running a windows platform due to compatibility with my clients.

You could also use a distribution known as IPCOP - www.ipcop.org.
As for your server, Linux makes a fine server - Windows computers wil have no problems connecting to it at all. A very easy one to use is Xandros - it has a very simple Windows server wizard - www.xandros.com.
