Hi all, I am going to set up a p133 as a

server, sql server, email server? I'm just
looking for general information to start my
research. This is all pretty new to me.

I have a P133 machine acting as a NAT firewall (iptables) to share cable to the LAN for ~30 users. It also acts as a low-volume pop/imap/smtp mail server and jabber server without any difficulties. I've attempted to add webmail (apache-ssl) to the mix, but that's a struggle.
