good server distro for an old computer

I got an old computer, which I'm going to make a web-server. What is a good distro for it? I don't know much about that computers hardware and I'm not keen at looking inside it. I just know that the processor is Pentium Celeron, it has a sound card (this is useful for using it as a jukebox too) and TNT as the graphic card. My brother tried to install Debian but he got frustrated and quit. I don't need X on it.

Try SME Server or Trustix
Runs fine on Celeron 466.

Yes, I agree with the above.

Trustix is good - but don't expect there to be a large user community.....

You could always use slackware with no gui..........
