Windows 2003 Upgrade

I have a Windows 2003 server with the following hardware:

Intel Pentium III @ 1.4 Ghz
1GB of RAM
6GB free space of the C drive

I was just told we needed to upgrade this server to Win 2008 Standard edition. I'm not comfortable upgrading this server to 2008 due to the specs I just listed. Does anyone have any comments? Thanks

I think you are right with your assumption.  Especially with the amount of free disk space.  See the following:

The free space is definitely an issue. The other specs come within specifications but I would suggest a new server.

As you think, you are running into problems.
I recommend minimum:

Processor: 2GHz or faster  
Memory 4GB RAM or greater
Available Disk Space: 40GB or greater
