Talking So I got this computer...

I've been looking for cheap parts to make a computer that runs on damnsmalllinux. But then my friend tells me I can have his old computer for free. He didn't tell me alot but he said it's pentium 4, O/S is XP, 70 GB hardrive and 512mb of RAM. Other than that I don't know anything about it. Anyways I wanted to do something special with this thing, like make it into something handy or out of the ordinary. So ya offer some suggestions of what I can do with it.

I think that can run DSL, just fine. To make it out of ordinary...maybe try modding the case or something.
