Best Distro for File Server/Backup Server?
Posted on 2006-04-03
I bought a cheap compaq (SR1710NX) for less then $200 recently, and I plan on upgrading it with RAM and a couple of HD's in a RAID 5 array... I was planning on using WinXP or Win2003 but I'd like to give Linux a whirl...
I have only poked around in Linux with a few Live Distros, but now I am looking for a solid solution to turn my Sub-$200 PC into a solid File Server, that I will mostly be using to backup other PC's onto.
Whats the Best Distro to accomplish this?
Is there a specific Linux App I will need to use to backup networked Windows machines?
Thanks for the help,
