    New user here, looking for some help

    I need the simplest, fastest things to set up a server on my computer. Any links would be very helpful. I have another computer I never use that I would like to make into a server. Just for images and small files I may need remotely. Any suggestions? Remember, the simpler, the better.

    Desktop: Windows XP Professional
    Very slow processer though, 512 RAM

    Notebook: Windows XP Home
    3.00 GHZ, 512 RAM.

    Either one is doable for the server.

    that will install webserver (apache), application server (php), database server (mySQL)... and configured already, so you just create site for running.

    Ok, so once I install that, what else, if anything, do I have to do?
