Not quite, I voted for postnuke.

I have a K6-2 300 CPU I will donate if the existing motherbord will
support it, or if someone can come up with a suitable motherboard.
Also have some memory available.

On which system are you saying package management is a dream?
I don't have any problems with security on RedHat. And it has been very
easy to keep packages up to date and add new ones.
OTOH, as a non-debian user, I hear debian is usually slower to release
updates because they try to keep it extremely stable and don't release
things until after they have been in use and tested by others for
security and stability. If I was making the decision it would be RedHat,
but that is based on comfort and familiarity with the system.
AFAIK, unless we have been stressing the existing machine, why does it
need to be upgraded right now? What is the hardware exactly? I thought
it was a pentium 133, and that is old but still seems pretty solid for a
site that is not highly stressed for activity.
