Hi Satish,

What are the other servers on your network? Are you using Windows systems primarily or are you running a mostly Linux shop?

If you want fileserver software and you are running Windows clients, then consider building Samba for your Linux system to share with a genuinely windows feel. For web-based access to the files, you could use Apache and let people browse, but that would only work for you if you do not care about security...

Hope this helped!

Just like to point out that if you have the original RH9, and not RH Fedora 9 (which just came out), that system hasn't been updated/supported for yrs, so its open to exploits etc.
Strongly recommend you update.
