I have a PC that recently died, HD failure. I was looking at turning the computer in a server and I was told to run it as a linux server. I was hoping to find some help as far as what I should do to make this work so I can use it for storage for my photos. I have a big case, the dead hd was an IDE hard drive, should i get sata drives or IDE? It has 5 bays for hard drives inside and then i have 3 open 5.25" bays, and then two more that have cd and dvd drives in them. so five total 5.25"bays so I could get a lot of hard drives in there. I have no clue as far as what to do with setting up Linux or what I should do when I do install it. Will this be compatible with my mbp? I pretty much have a paper weight right now and need to do something with it.
