If you are going to pump files out thru the school LAN you may want to contact your IS/IT dept. and see what they will allow. A pure file sever could run on any P-II/P-III for limited distibution. An Apachy sever wih XP Pro.
Your school may allow you system HD space and increased bandwith i you ask real nice.
I run a used HP Netsever LC3 dual P-III w\1 gb RAM with Windows NT4 sp6. I have 12+ computers on it at any given time. It only cost $150 and it's more than I need. If you get into streaming video it's a different game altogether.
Could you given a little more info on you system, number of people accessing per 24 hrs, How big the files in size, and will it be on an exsisting computer or will you install a new one?
