My boss is counting on me to build him a web server that is able to host 2000 blogging websites comfortably. Each page is updated almost daily...but it has maybe a few paragraphs of text and maybe a few (2-6) 200-400 kb jpeg pics.

Basically, I'm in over my head.

Does anyone know about anything like this? I was thinking...

-some tyan socket 939 mobo...dual CPU even though I'll start with only 1
-Dual Core Opteron 170 (2.0 ghz, 1mb cache)
-4gb ram
-2 500gb 7200rpm hard drives in a mirror RAID array (so 500gb total)
-some UPS
-Maybe a distro of linux....although we are willing to pay for user friendliness....is Windows Server 2003 ok? OR even XP???

That's all for the major hardware stuff. Can ANYONE here help me? How about bandwidth?

I get 10mbit download/256k upload for 30 dollars a month. I can get 10mbit download/1mbit upload for almost 65.

Or....100mbit download/100mbit upload for 400 a month.

What do I need? ahhh
