I have a pc that is lying redundant in my apartment. My housemate and i both use laptops (mac and pc) and are both linked to our ADSL connection through a router.
I am wondering can I set my old PC up as a file server? I have no idea of how to go about this so anyones adivce is much appreciated.
I basically want to use it to store music and video files to play back via itunes etc with our laptops. I presume linux will be more reliable than windows for running a server.
Look forward to hearing your advice.
