I would like to build a home file server that could also handle print server duties and I have some minor exposure to Unix from a previous job and would like to try my hand at Linux.
I would like some help, please, with determining some minimum specs for the machine.

freebsd x64 has a downside - no video driver from nvidia :p - so no good for me wanting to burn dvds on the server while watching films on main pc :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
