You could still run an mp3/ogg server on a 386.  As for no GUI?  Are
you sure?  One of the light desktops ought to run if you needed it (I
would).  Or for that matter you could simply use it as a document file
server perhaps purely for archival purposes.

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Take care.
