Please forgive the noobness of this post. I would like to set up a central location in our house where my wife and I can store all of our iTunes media for use with two MBP's and an TV as well as our iPhones and iPods. Would it make sense to pick up an older G5 or G4 Xserve for this purpose and run 10.5.x Server (I like Time Machine)? My thinking is that we would be able to map a network drive to our MBPs with all our iTunes media on it for syncing the iPods and iPhones. I understand that people have had issues syncing devices when the media has just been in a shared folder. My other reason for thinking about an inexpensive xserve is for backup of media. Instead of buying a Drobo or other NAS I could just use the internal bays at first for redundant backup. I was also thinking that we could set up a VPN for each computer to retrieve any info stored on the server (i.e. school work or the latest CSI episode etc). Does this make any sense or is there a better way of going about this? Also, do you have to have an Xserve to run OSX Server or can you throw it on a Mac Mini? Would that make more sense? Thanks for all your help!
