I am thinking about starting a web server with outdated hardware running CentOS minimal server. Now i know a bit about this my main problem is while the fact that the hardware is dated will it be able to handle the work load(see bottom of post for spec's) also I was thinking it should be a mail server as well I'm not 100% on the ports i would need to open and have forwarded to do this. I am looking for any information on these things. Gonna be writing a firewall for it just wanting to get the core idea covered before moving it into production. All your opinions and idea's are welcome:) thanks in advance!



basic spec's

pentium 4 3.00 Ghz

1 GB ram

200 GB hard drive
