Talking Dual Pentiums....what to do?

Just ordered a Dual Pentium III, Video, NIC, Video, and an SCSI controller off of ebay (sry no link and it was all in a combo like thing) , it also came with 512mb of RAM and i got it all for $44 (which i think is cheap as alot of them go way higher).

(The Pentiums are 550MHz)

One of my buddies (a geek as well ) told me to make a server out of it, but i'm still questioning it. What do you guys think i should do with it?

server is a good idea i had a pentium 3 550 before it runs xp with 256 mb of ram so it can also make a decent second computer.

my first thought was setting it up as a second computer, cause i have another PII sitting around doing nothing that i could turn into a server

With all of that stuff there, it would be a good server, but if you don't NEED a server.. I think it would serve better as a second computer.. or you can sell it for more money..
