Old? My PII 266 Mhz 512 RAM works fine at home...

Fiuu! Heavy uh? If you want more fun and if you are
behind a PBX you can send some more using internal
numbers :-).

To change the hardware specs I only see a reason:
network gaming! Unreal it's great!

Ok, more seriously. I hope you take my previous words
as a joke cause I'm in a good mod today :-).

I think your hardware is fine and don't see any reason
to change (you don't say what you want run there). In
our server, a PII 450 Mhz with 128 Ram, we are using
Apache for web interface and manual printing of
incomming jobs, Samba, Mysql, SSH and of course
Hylafax. We are using 3 lines to outgoing jobs, 2
Multitech external modems and 1 Comtrol Rocket Port
multimodem ISA card (8 ports) with 5 ports being used.
We sent 300+ fax and receive 2000+ pages per day. The
server, if wanted, could receive more load just
attaching more lines. Remember that the HDisk speed
(even IDE) is very fast compared with fax speed
transmission (I hope not saying something stupid with
this :-D ). For now, the plattaforms integrated are
any Windows flavour (excluding XP, we don't use it),
IBM AS/400 and linux.
