Server only or server/desktop
1. HP Desktop PC running Windows XP (Processor Intel Pentium D 940 (3.2GHz, 800MHz FSB), Memory 2GB DDR2-667MHz dual channel SDRAM (2x1024), Hard Drive 250GB RAID 1 (2 x 250GB SATA HDDs))
2. Server - hosting websites and streaming video and audio
How to configure the above? (I have purchased none of the above yet.) Is CentOS the right distro for hosting and streaming for a newbie to Linux? Is it possible and advisable to try and get CentOS installed on my Windows machine OR buy an independent server for my hosting and streaming and install CentOS on the server only?
