“Which is the better server for my home network, the Quadra 650 I’ve been using or the smaller Quadra 605?”

“One of the machines I have at the present moment is a Mac IIci, with a 68040 card, 128 MB RAM, 280 MB hard drive, and three empty NuBus slots. From what I have read on the list and elsewhere, it would make an excellent server.”
