So you are looking for something to do with the computers?
well they are fine for email and other things like that, if that is something you need.

You could also install linux on one of them and mess around with it, never hurts to try different operating systems.

Maybe do something fun with the other one... like experiment with some weird cooling solutions, I remember that some of the members submerged a computer into oil (olive oil or something) Just do something weird/fun with it.

put the ram together and even the hdd's so you get a pc with atleast 192mb ram and 40gb storage and a pentium 3.
then put xp on and use it as a server, or you could even go for the linux option. either way id put the parts together
