Depends on what you want to do with the server. It is okay if you want to provide a service for a local area network, but I think that the machine is too slow if you want to provide a service on the Internet. Anyway, just try it!
I am a pupil and using an IBM ThinkPad notebook (Intel Pentium 2), SuSE 9.1, ADSL connection, Apache 2 and MySQL (1 db with 5 tables) and I am currently providing an homepage for my class -- the server is only online every Friday between 6 and 8 pm, but it just works fine.
I would set up a system without any graphical stuff (no X) -- only if you really want to have a GUI, you could consider using fvwm or something similar.

Good luck!

I think it should be fine, but as mschutte says, avoid X. You could install it and use it if you really want to, but make sure the machine boots to runlevel 3, not runlevel 5, then you can just fire it up if you really need it. I can't see why you would though.

The machine probably isn't too bad to provide something to the web if you're just using a DSL conection, as the biggest bottleneck will be the upload speed of your line.

Just be careful when you install - from experience FC3 likes to install a lot of junk by default.

Cheers,

Steve

Sorry I think I was half asleep when I replied to this - if it doesn't work, try OpenBSD! It's use of system resources is very efficient. I run an OpenBSD system, it's been down to 32MB Ram before and didn't notice the difference - it doesn't run apache or mysql, but does run ntp, dns, ssh external access, exim+spamassassin and uses about 40MB at boot for that lot!

Rather nicely, it also has apache in the ports tree, and by default it installs to run chrooted.

Cheers,

Steve
