Awesome, this sounds like everything I've dreamed of
I've been wanting to set up a home network forever, but didn't know how to go about it... and it sounds sort of easy.
The University I work at used 2003 and I think they're stil in the process of going to 08. I'll probably go with 08 as well.
So, when I looked this up a long time ago I didn't find anything. But are there any guides to setting up an FTP network?
By the way, I'm a Windows user. I've tried linnux and you can get used to it... but I would stick with Winows personally. I'm sure these guys would be more than happy to help you, but it would prove to be a very lengthy process, at least more lengthy than using an OS that you already know. If you're like me in any way, and are excited to get this thing set up and want to see what all you can do with FTP... well I would go with Windows
And probably try linux in the future. Maybe.
