if you know anything about using it you can just load linux, its free and it already has apache webserver installed with it.

You can use XP if you have it. Also you can use Windows 2000 server, I'm not sure if you can use W2k professional or not. I know you can use XP Pro and install IIS on it and then configure. Let us know what it is running or what you can put on it and help will be waiting. ;)
