How to turn a computer into a server?

I was just at a fundraiser sale, and found a rather nice computer for $50. It had a decent processor, and I loaded it up with a couple gigs of ram, and it's running just fine.
What I want to do is turn that computer into a server that I can use. I have heard it can be done, but I have no clue how to go about it.
What I am looking to do:
Create a server (Either windows or any linux distro) which will run PHP/MySQL. I have to be able to put allow java files on it...That's the next part I plan on learning, and have no clue what a server needs to be able to use java files.

Either a step by step guide, a website, or whatever it may be! I just want to take advantage of this time to learn more about client/server interface....
Here to answer any questions, thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer!

Computer as a server and client-server interfaces are two distinctly separate and different things...

To turn (any) computer into a server you will need to remove anything that is NOT needed (like most of Winz [Windows] OS) or install *nix (Linux/Unix) instead, *nix system are much more suitable for server applications. Then you will need to have (Linux already comes with) a web server (Apache/IIS...) and PHP module for it, you will need to install MySQL (DB server) too. To allow serving of Java pages/servlets (not just Applets) you will need to install Java support for the web server (Tomcat for Apache is very good).
Google will help you find the information. Apache/MySQL/Tomcat come with help files and docs on their sites...
