Question Lokking to install FreeBSD 730 on an old dell Dmension L933r

I have an old dell demension L933r which Iwas planning to use as a Samba print and File Server for my network.

The Specs are as follows.

CD R?RW dvd reader combo
processor: Intel Pentium III @933MHZ

768 MiB Ram

80GB hard drive upgraded fromn the oem 20gb

Linksys 100baset ethernet adapter

Posible: Linksys WMP54g PCI WIRELESS adapter to enable the machine to be used as light weight Wireless access point/dhcp & samba server 1 to 5 clients.

Do you think it si a good idea tio use a machine this old with these lowball spec as a Samba server /wireless access point?
Google Linux is a Green Horns Best Friend (GHBF).
Windows = a 32 bit extensions to a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a four bit processor written by 2-bit monopolistic software company founded by a .3-bit Harvard Drop out, who can't stand one respectable bit of competition.
If I believe something to be immoral a will not keep quite and let my voice of annoyance be heard loud and clear.
