Dunno if this fits under general computer...but I figured this gets more views than Networking, move it if you feel I was wrong mods.
I want to setup a couple of servers as a small project for myself over the summer to break from work, and keep me from sitting around all the time when at home. I'll probably have to obtain more systems, but I need to know some about servers... What all can I do with a server? I know the basic one would be a simple file server, and then you could hook up a printer to it for a printer server. Or a web server, looking into that, but don't really know how to go about doing it. What else can I really do with a server? I've heard of people having like 5 servers in their room. Seems cool, but I wouldn't know what to do with 5 servers...
ATM, I have a Celeron 1.7 system w/ 256MB ram, and an HP Netserver w/ 2x 450Mhz P2's and 128MB ram. So only 1 is made to be a server, but who said I need a real server to do a server's job? As I said, I plan on trying to get more free stuff if possible and seeing what I can use from that.
Any help would be appreciated.
