I want to install a file server in a peer to peer environment (XP Machines). Right now files are being shared from an XP machine. Security is decent, for what they want, but every so often access to the shared folders craps out.
I want to install a file server on the network, but I want to avoid creating a domain. I just want a file server to store their documents while providing thorough/stable security.
Can I go with Redhat, or some other Linux flavor. I don't have any experience with Linux. But I'm confident that I can learn.
Or is there an even better solution?
