Linux Home Server/Media Center
I want to set up a Server on my home network that would act like a cross between the new Windows Home Server and Windows Media Center. The network will be a Linux/Windows hybrid on a 100/1000BaseT Network and i was wondering what distros would be the best to use as well as what servers to actually install to keep install size down to a minimum (would Gnome or KDE be better). I know I need a Samba server, as far as distros go i was thinking of using Fedora 9 or openSUSE 10.3 but if there is a better distro to use i would appreciate it if you let me know. I'm not going to use Ubuntu or Kubuntu though.
