I have a server, 64mb RAM, 233mhz PII with 3x 2.1GB hdd's, cdrom drive and LAN card.
Can anyone reccomend a distro which will be suitable for turning this machine into a file server (SMB or FTP) for my network. It must have a GUI - although this doesnt nececirally mean X, a web-based admin tool is fine.
(I know how to get around the shell and how to use vi but im not a guru)
Hmm... I think Ubuntu server edition would be the easiest, and that would run on your computer. If you want a highly optimized install, use Gentoo or Slackware. Debian would also work. Of all of these, Gentoo Minimal is the hardest to install, with Slackware being hard, but not if you follow the instructions.
It's your choice, and your computer isn't overly slow; choose your favorite distro, and then trim it down a little!
