Default what needs more horsepower

i want to setup a small Active Directory network and i've done some of my testing already, i have 2 systems and i need 2 systems but i don't know which to use for wat...

I have my current File Server

PIII 1 GHz
512 RAM
windows server 2003
DVD Burner

and my Dual PII 400
256
Windows server 2003
(can swap out DVD drive if need be for File Server)

which one should be my Active Directory + DNS + DC, and which should be the FS

thanks in advance.

All i know is for the directory thing why not use number 1 since it is faster and mpre powerfull than number 2.

the File Server will probably actually get more attention, it's hosting my MP3's software, Ghost Imaging server, backup server, CD and DVD Burner/Ripper... so im actually probably going to use the Dual PII for the AD and DNS and DC
