I'm planning to set up an home server with a Via epia 5000 MB, 384 MB RAM and a 120 GB HD.
Now I'm wondering, what kind of OS should I get ?? - I will use it for an file server ONLY, for my 3 other PC's on my home network, and that's it !!!
I am not in to Linux, BEOS and other "FreeOS", so I guess it's between Win2K, WinServer or Win XP (Win98 and sh** is out of the Q :-) )
I'm loking for the most stabil and fast OS for that purpose, what would you suggest
What about WOL on a Epia 5000 ?? - will that work ??
I'm figuring that, if the server is not used it could go in "stand by" and if one of the PC's need files on it, it could "wake up" .... or
Sorry about the "stupid" Q's, but I'm a TOTALY newbi .....(Don't even have the MB yet, but next week .... I hope)
