I bought dell poweredge 2500 3 months it seem work good now it run window xp pro.
I am worry about window home server not work on dell because it was so old?
I know dell poweredge 2500 have 6 scsi hard drives.
2 is 73 gb seagate
2 is 36 gb seagate

For ram it have 2.5 gb and dual intel pIII 933 mhz.

No, that's plenty good for home server IMO. It should run it fine. I'll look around and see if I can find the recommended specs for server though, just to be sure..
The hardware requirements for Windows Home server are really basic, so it is really easy to find parts and put together a machine without spending a lot of money. The Microsoft website indicates the minimum hardware requirements for Windows Home Server are a 1GHz Pentium III with 512MB of RAM. The recommended hardware is exactly the same except they recommend a Pentium 4, AMD x64 or newer CPU.

"Probably more important than CPU or memory is going to be storage space. The minimum recommended is 70 GB"
It wouldn't let me install on a 60gig drive so I popped in an 80 gigger and it installed ok. Hopefully your C drive is one of the 73 gig drives in the system.“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
