I'm about to get DSL so that I can host my own domain (and web/email servers) at home. I already own the domain name (paddedwall.org, and it is currently being hosted by WestHost.com.
I'm running a Shuttle MN31N nForce2 motherboard, AMD 1900, 1gb PC2700 RAM, and a 40gb hard drive. The system only runs Linux (currently a downloaded Mandrake 9.1), and I run KDE for my desktop.
As far as the web server goes, I don't anticipate a lot of simultaneous hits.
I will also be using the same machine to drive a Haupauge TV card, but that's all I anticipate using it for besides the server stuff.
Is the machine I listed above going to be stout enough for the tasks described?
Comments, advice, and insults are welcomed and encouraged. However, I'm new at this so go easy on the insults unless I say something really stupid.
