Setting up an NT Server

By aspiring_one ·
I've done this a million times, however I'm a bit out of touch with the latest hardware, so I was wondering if someone could tell me their minimum recommendations for building a very basic NT 4.0 Server.

I am particularly interested in knowing what motherboard/cpu combos you've had good results with. It does not have to be anything too fancy, just very reliable to run an NT only product.

Once the server is set up, it will be completely left alone.

Setting up an NT Server

I'm sure everyone would love to have PIII 500 or higher CPU... I am running a P133, and it runs fine. You can save a lot of money by building a nice Celeron system. Use the $$$ you save on the Processor to add another hard disk or more Ram. At some point you may want to upgrade this box to Win2K Server, so you shouldn't go with anything really low end. I would go for a Celeron 400mhz or so, at least 128mb Ram, a couple 15 or 20 gb har drives (they're so cheap). ASUS and ABIT are very stable motherboards. Video card doesn't even matter... but go name brand at least so that the drivers are stable. You won't be doing any fancy stuff with that anyways.
