In that case, use what you have, and keep marching forward!  I did 
something similar with an old Power Mac 5260, which also had 10Mbit, 
half duplex.  It felt a bit sluggish, yes, but it did work.  The thing 
that matters the most is that your network uses switches, not hubs, and 
that your server has at least a 100Mbit connection.  If you can get a 
1Gbit connection for the server, then that's even better, but for your 
10Mbit clients, 100Mbit will do fine.
