Hi I'm in the UK and currently work with 3 Win XP Pro machines (2 desktops and 1 laptop), one of which acts as a server centrally storing all working files (Word, Access databases, Excel, etc). I want to buy a MBP and I know the MBP can open/edit/write to the files on the XP machine that stores all the files. But I am thinking of getting a separate network storage box and just having that attached to the router and then using that for the PCs and the MPB to access. I want the MBP to be able to access the network storage box through OSX (Leopard) and through a Parallels/VMWare version of XP Pro running on the MBP. Just wondered if anyone could give any advice about what to look for when buying such a box and if there are any config issues to consider with the MBP accessing the box through both OSX and XP Pro. Thanks in advance.
