Install a Linux distro on it.

Good idea. Seeing as this has been asked before. Obviously has too many PCs.

Computers are handy for stuff like emailing, browsing the internet, the limits are endless....

yes i seem to get some many pcs, all in working condition, some i keep some i dont (i have one HP Netserver LC2000, a desktop i build, a laptop and the machine mentioned in this post, all in my room). i decided to throw Win 2k3 standard on it, threw in a 160gb and a 200gb hdds, using it as a fileserver and i also installed microsoft ISA (internet Security and Acceleration) Server 2004 Standard. *which is a proxy/firewall* Seems to be working okay so far. Linux prob could have done it too, but i seem to be extremely hestiant to even touch linux......i dont know why either.
