hello,

i'm looking into buying a lindows box.

1) i could use some help selecting the right hardware
i want at least a 100gb hd
512mb ram (1gb is better) [upgradeable]
2.5gb cpu (or better)
good motherboard, video, sound, nic, modem etc. all working well
together and with lindows

i'm not looking for anything fancy (around $2000), as long as the system
will work right and last a few years. any solid advice is highly
appreciated

2) does anybody here have any experience with this os? does apache work
with lindows?

thank you. have a great day.
