PowerMac G5 as Leopard Time Machine server.
So, I got a hand me down 2.0 Dual Core 2005 G5 PowerMac.
I have ordered 8GB of Ram and a 240GB SSD for it and have dropped in a 1TB drive.
Currently I have Tiger on it, but want to buy a copy of Leopard when I get the SSD drive, but was intrigued by the idea of installing Leopard Server instead and using it as a Time Machine server for my Macbook Airs.
My plan is to use the PowerMac for Final Cut Express video editing, photoshop duties as well as being a media store.
I have been thinking of buying a Time Capsule, but if i can use Leopard Server and have it as a TM backup server, that would be very useful.
I have a few questions as I am assessing the feasibility of it;
1- How easy is it to set up?
2- How reliable is it?
3- Will if affect the performance of other functions for the PowerMac such as my video editing?
