Hey there,

I'm going to be doing something similar next week - getting an old pc
of mine back from somewhere with about a 600mhz processor and I think
32/64mb of ram but I can't remember exactly. Going to put a big hard
drive in it and probably put Debian on it to run as a server and
administer remotely with ssh. I'll let you know how this goes if
you're interested?

I wasn't planning on syncing things but I wonder if you could use
rsync and cron to schedule automatic syncing?!
