Making a Local Area File Server

Well I finally bought some Ram (1GB DDR 333) from newegg for my old computer (AMD AthlonXP 2400+ 120GB HDD, 40GB HDD). There's no need for an OS install since Gentoo is already installed. And there is a lot of data on the dead (as of now since it has no ram) computer that I value highly.

Would directories defined as SAMBA shares be sufficient enough for a Private File server?

Of course, I need to configure the system to be access from a different system for system upgrades as I would like it to be monitor/keyboardless most of the time, I need OpenSSH (spelling?) to do that right?

But more to the point, this is just a progress report. I'll seriously look for more information once the system is up and running again.

Progress: 1GB of 333 DDR Ram ordered from Newegg.

To Come: Configuration.
