The quad ppro is probably a server-class machine with bulletproof
power supplies, scsi and a bunch of drive bays.  Turn that into
a file server and export /home from it.  You might want to load
Centos on it so you can get updates for a while without re-installing.
Then install k12ltsp on the P4 box, which won't need a lot of
disk space.  When you need your 2nd k12ltsp server you'll be ready
to mount up the same /home into another cheap but fast P4 box.
