CMS Made Simple and Joomla are best suited on Linux machines (a good little project actually).
Dot Net Nuke is windows based, it should run perfect on a windows xp machine with SQL Server Express edition (also free).

An old P4 will do perfectly, and you can actually host it on port 8080 or something like that.
Thanks a lot. The reason I don't want to go along with a full server is because with this option, I create more security risks, whereas with an sftp, I feel I'd have more control with regards to security. If you have a good HowTo to deal with security issues, such as those common to websites, that will be great. Thanks a lot again.
