Required: reliability, enough horsepower to respond. The usage will be 
mostly simple static page serving plus email. I don't plan to run PHP 
or other scripting languages pulling from a DB. I may eventually run a 
Jabber service.

Over the years I've spent recycling various kinds of hardware, and 
running several systems bought new, I find even the low-priced machines 
designed as servers are far more reliable than just about any 
desktop/workstation box.

I suppose, theoretically, even an ancient Pentium II would do the job, 
provided it has enough RAM. I plan to run something like Debian Vanilla 
or CentOS. While I don't know an awful lot about server admin, I'll 
just have to dig into it.
