HP Netserver E30 - UPGRADE

I have E30 Server, which is P200 Mhz, 64 MB RAM, 2GB HDD, WINNT 4.0 Server Installed.

As the technology grows at rapid speed, i have got some latest PIII processors computers.

What is the best way to upgrade this server so that can use it to the best of it

I guess it depends upon what you want to use it for. You could add more memory (another 64mb), maybe even the processor (which isn't always possible).

I am surprised you got 200MHz procs to work in your system, The fastest HP sold was a 166MHz. That's as fast it will go. It also only allows one processor. The max amount of memory is 192MB. 6x32MB.

Well, it depends upon what you want to do. If you wanted to, you could make it a webserver (if you have a direct connection), since it doesnt have to be a monster of a machine (see FreeDOS Fish server). Or if you want it to be a fileserver, you could buy a huge harddisk (be sure that it is fast, like 7200 rpm).
