Ubuntu 12.04.2 server edition minimum specification?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have an old PC that I was planning too setup as a NAS system and I'm not really up there on tech knowledge. I was wondering could someone please give me some guidance as to what the minimum specifications this computer would require to run the server edition of Ubuntu, or will the Ubuntu server run at all on a really old PC.
