Hi,

You could look at the 'LAMP'.

May want to try the Amahi linux home server

Hi,

We have been working on this home server "distro" based on fedora 8 called Amahi. The wiki is here and here is the blog.

It's in a private beta at the moment, and the F8 release just went live recently, along with a new ruby on rails version (2.0).

All the things in the web page can be done, though at this time, it takes some patience and persistance to get all going, since after install the system is at the 90% level (most things work, but you still have to configure the file server through the config files or the desktop configuration program).

We're also interested in seeing what people want for a home server. Currently we have a bunch of features, including some pluging that do cool stuff, like torrent client with a web interface, calendars, etc., etc.

The server is designed to be headless, however, it supports standard dektops like gnome, etc.

Try it out! It's cool! B-)

A good general site is http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/ Being a recent distro doesn't really change anything.

As aluded to though, you really need to decide what you are trying to achieve

Smile Home Network

Hello to All,
What I'm tring to do is set up a home network server.
I have one vista ultimate 64 bit machine and 5 winXP machines in which 4 of those are wireless to my router.
What i'd like to do is be able to print from the server, load game onto server, and access the server from all computers to play games.
Also I would like to save my pics & files from the other machines and have one location to retrieve music, pics and video files.
Can you help this newbie in the right direction?

You could look at the links that we submitted to the 'OP'.

BTW, you would get more response by creating a new thread rather than hijacking one.
