Question Fedora Core on Asus Eee Box


My home server died today. (Dell XPS 420, Fedora Core 6, Apache, Squid, vsftpd, Webmin) It powers on, then there's a quick burst of HD activity, but no CPU. Then it just sits there, not booting. Blah, blah, blah...anyways, I was wondering how Fedora would run on an Eee Box with a base configuration (1.6Ghz Atom, 1GB Ram, 80G HD). Its small form factor and low price makes it appealing to me. I would install Apache, vsftpd, and Webmin on it.

Does anyone use an Eee Box as a server?
Is anyone running a similar system?

Thanks in advance.
Jake

for serving static web pages I think it would be fine.
I'm not sure how well it would perform hosting a LAMP site though..

Thanks, but I was specifically thinking about the Eee Box, not the netbook.

Ahh didn't realize they made a 'Box'.

Still the same CPU, and specs.. so it would perform pretty much the same.

Did you get the EEE Box? I heard a rumor that when the Ethernet port is active it loaded the CPU. What I was thinking of using it for was hooked to the TV playing videos over NFS.

Thanks

No, I didn't buy one. My Dell was magically able to boot again after I removed and then reinstalled everything but the motherboard from the case.

Thats a nice idea you had there. How are you going to connect it to your TV?

The EEEbox has a DVI output. DVI and HDMI are the same except DVI does not have built in audio.
