I ran an Indy as a web server for a while. You can't put three drives in it, but you can put two drives in it. You can also attach external drives. I don't have any experience with putting a second network interface card ("NIC") in the Indy, but I do know that second NICs are available.

The Indy performed rather well with Apache. My server didn't get a lot of traffic, but the 150 MHz R5000SC MIPS processor in it didn't have any problems keeping up.
