I would like a dedicated box to browse and torrent and nothing else. Naturally, linux seems like a good choice. However, the hardware I got is very old (I do like the shape of those box). The system I'm thinking of using is a P3-800, 512mb ram & 10gb harddisc. There is no CD rom. I'm thinking of running linux off a USB drive and use the hd for storage.
However, I do need to be able to remote login to the box like the Remote Desktop Connection funtion with Windows as I tend to use my laptop to login to other computers I have and operate in that manner. Preferably, I can do a virus scan of files downloaded before being move to another storage system. Anything else like word processor of the likes should be able to be removed from the operating system so that I only have what is being used.
Anybody got suggestion?
