Setting up a personalized router/ap/wireless bridge/repeater


Hi, I would like to have this set up:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php...ter_Bridge.jpg
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Repeater_Bridge

but wouldn't exactly want to spend the $$$ on buying a router and flashing it since I have an old unused pc (P2 350MHz 64MB SDRAM) which could possibly work better and could act as a web server as well.

So in my setup I would theoretically want something like this:
Internet<->Primary router<-->Wireless bridge<-->Old PC with installed wireless PCI card <--> Switch <--> Wired clients
|
|
Wireless clients
Do note that the primary router must be able to accept both connections from wireless and wired clients.

And so my question would be:
How would I go about setting it up? Which distro would be most suitable for the task and what packages would I need?
