Server and Linux Newbie question
Hey y'all. I have an old PC that I want to set up to use as a server in my house. I have 4 computers that I want to network to it. I would basically want it to hold my music/videos so that i can listen to whatever i want on any computer. I guess it could be a good place to store my documents as well. It also should be able to communicate with OS X and Windows. The problem is that I've never set up any kind of server before and have no idea where to start, what i need to install, etc. Can anyone give me some pointers as far as a good (aka easy...at least until i get the basics down) Distro to start with and where to go from there. Or if you could point me to a guide/thread that might help that would be awesome! Thanks!
EDIT: I'm also a relative newbie to Linux, I've played with a few Distros (Ubuntu, Slax, Symphony, DSL, etc.) but that's about it.
