it is possible. is it for your own inhouse use / or for outside server use ?
but to do that your old cpu configuration should be known first.

nginx can do that .
see
http://nginx.org/en/

it is a full fledeg server but can be used for local.

only requirement is that you must be ready for trial and error , as your requirement is not seen commonly.

there are lot of simple packages as server also. but each one requires experimenting and spending time on your side.

What exactly do you want the server to do? If it's just a file repository, look at NAS or just enable networking and sharing on it and remove as many applications as possible. If you are trying to host a web site, FTP or email mailboxes, look at http://www.pablosoftwaresolutions.com/html/products.html If you want a video or media server, look at Serviio.

Otherwise, if you want to run aplications remotely on it, you could consider one of the many Linux based servers. Ubuntu Server is probably easiest to use.
