I would, just for clarity, put your question in your post as well.

If you're going for a server build, there is only really one option - the latest (and hopefully greatest), Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS.

I would junk it. Pentium 2 with 64mb RAM is not usable hardware in 2012.

Here are the minimum recommended specs for Ubuntu Server:

Quote:
Ubuntu Server (CLI) Installation

300 MHz x86 processor
128 MiB of system memory (RAM)
1 GB of disk space

I have to agree. A newer machine will also likely use less power, especially if you go with an Atom or other low-power processor -- which you should if you just want to replace a simple server.
