Recommend them a cheap Linux box.  You could probably set yourself up 
with a web server for less than a hundred bucks, just need a Pentium 1 
with a crummy handmedown monitor and an ethernet card.  Mandrake is 
supposed to be incredibly easy to use and graphically configurable, and 
if these people really want to get going with PHP and web serving then 
they're probably willing to learn a little Linux... or they could get 
someone else (yourself?) to administrate the box for them.

Or even put the 68k linux distro (I forget its name) on their 8500.

I must have had about 300 games for my old Atari 800.  Gallahad and the 
Holy Grail, Ulysses and the Golden Fleece, Jungle Hunt, Pitfall, Haunted 
House, man... I wish I still had them.  Then again, it might be like 
those movies that you remember so fondly as a kid but then you see again 
fifteen years later and you're like "what was I thinking?"  The memory 
ends up being better than the reality.  My Atari is best left in my 
attic... :)
