Will happily route and serve files, but for similar money you could be looking at a Duron or low speed XP mobo/CPU combo. Not to knock on the BP6 but can be easily outclassed by a single CPU Athlon at this point.
The HPT 366 controller on the bp6 is pretty well useless, the UDMA 33 is twice the speed of the UDMA 66
And a lot of them have failing caps, mine does and I have had to replace most of them.
I think that there is still some more to go as it locks up the ps2 ports in 3d games.
A Nforce 1 chipset with duron 1300 is a pretty cheap solution. I have been selling these as entry level system for business use and some light gaming.
Here is some problems that other Bp6 users were having.
If ya don't belive me do some benchmarks on the HPT 366 with a fast drive (I used a 7.2k ata133 80g maxtor and a few 7.2k quantums), then put it on the ata 33 controller you will see what I am talking about.
My bp6 was running as a NT4 server for its whole life 24/7. It has clocked up a lot of hours of use, which probably was the reason that the caps have failed earlier than some of the less used ones.
I have 2 BP6 based machines and they are both worth it.
The first one is used as fileserver and for playing Diablo II under Winex, and the second one is used for compressing DivX until i can afford a Athlon MP.
Get the 366 mhz CPU´s, they will most likely run at 550 mhz with a 2/3 PCI multiplier and a 100 mhz FSB.
