yeah, I have to admit when my friend said he was going to give me a server, I was picturing something a little more useful and modern.
I'm just gonna play around with it for an afternoon just for kicks, and I'm bored. Anybody know how to access it with my laptop? It appears to connect via my modem?
EDIT: got it figured out, played around with it. Had Windows NT 4.0 Server on it. so I ended up gutting over half of the components, re-built it with some of my un-used gear. Re-installing NT 4.0 Server right now. I know I could have used better server software but I already had the disk.
That beast of a power supply that was in it sounded louder than my lawnmower lol.
