The server will be a PIII 400Mhz, with 128MB RAM.
I'll have 2 HD's
1GB HD - this will have OS on it
160GB HD - File server HD
Was wondering if anyone had any opinions on what distro I should use.
Factors to consider:
1. Windows boxes will be accessing this as well as Linux boxes
2. Ease of configurability - what I mean is does a certain distro add-in a certain functionality to make it more easily configurable for a file server simply because I won't be using a GUI ... it will all be text commands that I want to use. However, initially to configure it I may use it GUI but not after it's been initially configured, but when I go back I want to be able to configure it through text commands
. (I know Linux pretty well so learning it won't be a problem)
3. Speed - I know Linux has quite the advantage over Windows NT as a file server because it's faster but I would like to know if any of you have experienced a difference in speed with other distros
That's about all I really have right now
Thanks for your suggestions in advance.
