Old Server - help speed up network?
This is kinda related to a thread from a couple of weeks ago
Basically our one and only server is starting to feel the strain of our network but currently we have no money for new server. I have very kindly been donated a server from a friends business 4gb ram 2x73gb scsi 2x170gb sata and a 3ghz dualcore.
Now I know this isnt super fast but assume that somehwere it can help with taking a bit of load from my DC? Maybe use as fileserver? Just somewhere to keep profiles? Im not really looking to expand capabilities i.e nagios cacti server etc, im looking to share out/speed up my dc server responsibilities.
Anyone got any ideas? Any linux distros that can do a few things for me?
Thanks in advance
