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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
