Multi-server on "old" servers

Hello all.
We have a bunch of "old" Proliants that we'd like to use to start our Zimba multiserver implementation : P3-800 (1GB of RAM) and a couple of dual P3-1.2GHz (1GB of RAM too). All have RAID subsystems.
What would be the best dispatch for our servers ?

The idea is to start these servers and, if needed, upgrade them (still being multi-server) to up to date servers.
In other terms : which part of the setup (LDAP, MTA, Storage, etc) should go on a P3-800 and which one should go on the dual-P3-1.2GHz ?

I'd try the MTA with AV/AS n the 800MHz host then everything else on the other. Monitor the load and if the dual server is loaded more move something like the logger over to the other server.
