    making a home entertainment network


    I want to create a entertainment network (cant think of a better name) but here are the programms and what I think I will do, this is my spring break project.

    I a couple of older computers 500mghz and a newer computer athalon 2600 (well maybe not that new). What I want to setup is a central server on the 2600 and have diskless nodes connected to the tv's throughout the house. I allready have a network throughout the house . Each node will have a tv tuner card so each node can record to the server.

    Software I plan on using
    Freevo for viewing and recording.
    mplayer
    RedHat fc 3 as the distro
    [is there better software I could use]

    Also I've never done a diskless node before so does anybody know of a good howto to get that started. Any advice would be appreciated, thanx for reading bignester
    The computer made me do it!! Slackware and SUSE too Gig\'em WHOOOOP!!
