patchlink server

i currently have a 100 user licence so just starting to roll out as a test i have installed a lowish spec server - ie a dl380 g2 1.5gb ram , 5i array controller , raid 1 for os , raid 5 for data. windows 2003 standard edition and only the default msde install. so firstly is this a realistic spec or should i consider upping it. i have two servers that i want to install as clients but they cannot communicate via port 80 - can i set these to make request over another port but leave all others as the default 80

second part

we have multiple sites that are over 2mb or smaller links
each of these sites have a server there - netware 6.5 sp2
can i set these up as distribution points so that i can just send the patches down once if so what is easiest way to do this
