Hi all,
hope I'm posting in the right place and that someone will have some ideas on this.
I have to build a server for a small business and configure the network to be accessable from several locations around the globe.
Spec I have in mind is as follows

ASUS M2N4-SLI NF4 Socket AM2

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 AM2

2x 500GB Seagate 7200 SATA-2 (mirrored raid)

4GB PC6400 Elixir DDR2 800 SDRAM

10/100/1000 Ethernet Card

Microsoft Windows SBS 2003 R2

Please give your thoughts and any suggestions,

Thanks in advance
