Indeed. I've even run Windows 2003 on a similar machine. The ultimate
problem with old hardware, though, is failure. You're much more likely to
get hardware failures on such old equipment.
After shaving pennies by running my web site on old equipment for years, I
finally wised up and realized that I was spending more money on replacement
equipment and time than I was saving.
