Hi All, Well, I bought some G4 towers, one 733 quicksilver and one FW800 MDD and I want to set up a home server. I've quickly realized that what I thought would be simple is not and I feel like I'm in the deep end of the pool without floaties. I don't need complicated email, printer sharing, or remote internet access. I just want to load one or both of them up with big drives that are dedicated for storage and backup. My initial thought is a drive for music, one for video, one for photos, and one for time machine back up. Here's the problem. I don't know how to make this happen. Can I do it all with Leopard or Tiger? I've heard about headless access or screen sharing, but I don't know how to accomplish this? My research has found all kinds of options like Free NAS or Ubuntu/Linux, but I don't know anything about these platforms and I have no clue how to work with Terminal commands. Any help would be appreciated. The goal is to simply connect the server by wired ethernet and have access to the media on our main iMac and our G4 Ibook which both use Leopard. At this point I'm not looking at Raid or anything like that, but I'm sure I will eventually after I know how this will basically work. (one step at a time) I do already know that if I want to use large drives I will probably have to get a PCI SATA controller card. Any and all advice is appreciated. I've looked for a simple walkthrough or guide to doing this and can't find anything. Thanks in advance for all replies.
