A friend of mine has an old beige Power Mac G3 366, which is currently gathering dust. Today I called up my friend and suggested putting this older machine to good use as a server (most likely, a file server) for his home system. This system consists of two iMacs, a G3 and G5, an Asante ethernet hub, and a networkable Lexmark laser printer. My question is: how well will this machine function as a server running Yellowdog Linux 3.x (which I have at my disposal) for his small network?
Any feedback and suggestions are appreciated.
