  The server...if you want to get rid of server 2003 then you can do the same as with the optiplex. 

  As for the hard drives, hmm. Do you have an external backup source that you could copy them onto whilst you install ubuntu?

    What about the server, which has Windows server 2003 on it, I think?  What about the extra hard drives with hundreds of digital pictures? I know questions questions questions!!

      Hmm Windows... what a nasty word...anyway... Joomla is a nice piece of kit, its dead simple to install ubuntu, you just have to stick it in the drive and watch it load... Then just hit the install button on the desktop. The beauty of ubuntu is the fact that you hardly ever have to touch the command line, most of it is point and click :)

        Well, in all honesty I know nothing about the operating system, having been stuck with Windows XP for so long, sorry if I swore then!!. 

        So I have this base unit which I would love to put Ubuntu on. I am learning to build websites and use Joomla, which I love. I also have a Dell server, which is a Poweredge SC430. It isn't properly being used as a server, and would love to convert that and use it properly.

        But as I said I know nothing about these systems, and at 57 (tomorrow) I am learning as fast as I can.

          No worries :)

          And yeah, you're right. 12 is recommended. Sometimes people moan when there is someone uses a large font, i was just avoiding flaming. 

          Do you need any extra information for getting an OS for your machine?

            Sorry, I am only using Arial 14, not bold at all. I though typing in capital letters was rude. I do have problems reading some of your postings because they are so small. The disability guideline suggest using Arial 12.

              Ubuntu Desktop 7.0.4 should work fine. http://ubuntu.com You shouldn't experience any issues as I have 9 of these in the office running this.

              Is there any reason your font is so bold? It's considered rude on mailing lists.

                I have a spare Dell Optiplex GX620 base. I think it is a pentium 4 and has 1gb of memory. It is connected via an 8 port KVM switch and I would like to know what I can get, on a CD or DVD that I can load straight onto it that will work without any or to many problems?
