I have 2 Dell PowerEdge 2300 Servers with 512MB of RAM each. They're  
Dual Processor Pentium 3 machines @ 600mhz. One has a 20/40gb DLT  
drive. I'm about to recycle them but would rather donate them if  
anyone is interested. 3Com Superstack II Dual Speed hub available too.
I've actually used similar servers for a Linux lab setup in South  
Africa. I used a combination of Edubuntu and regular debian for my  
lab. Also used recycled machines and thin terminals (from Devon IT  
http://www.devonit.com) in the lab.

Let me know if interested. Thanks.
