I'm about to start a project of installing Ubuntu 11.10 server edition on an old 1999 Dell box. I haven't used the machine in years, but it is still working. It's got 300mb ram, and a 500mhz pentium 3 processor. It's pretty much the specs I use on most of the vms I have running windows. I'm planning to use it as an IRC server, with ssh and some other services.
I was wondering whether anyone else has tried this? Is there anything I should watch out for?
Thanks in advance
