Wanna make an FTp server


I have a really bad server that i would like to convert into a file server.



Spec
--------------------
200mhz
256mb
30GB (if it will install an OS i will upgrade)
18GB SCSI




I need a distro that will work with this server

Any Ideas?

Slackware is the best distro. It's simple, stable and fast. And it's probably the best tool to learn Linux because of it's simplicity. It's also the most UNIX-like distro.

Enjoy.

ProFTP isn't the default Slackware's FTP anymore. I strongly suggest you to use Vsftp (VS for Very Secure) instead.
