Using an old system for storage / server
I am seeking guidance on using an old desktop system to let me store a very large amount of photographs and also to use it as a print server.
We have somewhere in the region of 400 GB + of photographs so far and my partner likes to have them displaying as a screen show rather than a static desktop wallpaper. She is running XP on her laptop whilst I am using Jaunty on mine.
What I would hope to do is to network the printer via the desktop and have it that both of us could access it from our laptops.
Is this viable and if so how do I best achieve this?
