Use it for any kind of testing you can throw at it! Testing running a web environment (tomcat, java, etc), ftp, email, database, proxy, etc. Try running a Linux distro on it. Maybe use it for just a file server for multimedia, installs, etc...

Technically, yes it can run Win2K. I've also run Win2K3 (web edition) on a P400 with 128 ram, 4gb hdd. Yes, It can be done, and MS has made good advances in making sure their OS can "run" on a limited system. However, from what I've seen, it's obviously horribly slow, and if you do any kind of testing (install/remove/update/hardware changes/frequent reboots) it will quickly start to die. Yes, the OS also does this on more modern systems, but because of their speed, it takes much longer to notice.

 

Point I was trying to make is just that a different environment would probably be a bit more responsive on the hardware...
