    CD Servers

    Does anyone have any recomendations (is there any?) for a decent free DVD Server impimentation so I can share DVD's around the site (those I can legally do so

    Don't really want to have to buy something if VERY few people are going to be using it.

    Cheers

    At the moment no. As long as VMWare will let me create one one then I could knock one up quickly, however my Lunix is weak at best.

    From past experience, Linux is a little pain to get working, however it just runs after that, my CDserver ran on vmware without a hitch for three years. If authentication is not a problem then a samba share available to everyone is the easiest way. I would plumb for Ubuntu as the community is fairly strong. The process if you decide to go this way is described in the following link Build a Virtual CD-ROM Jukebox | Linux Journal

    I wonder what the legalities would be if you ripped the DVDs to AVI, MP4 or alternative, dropped them in a shared drive and used VLC player to veiw them. I half remember some relaxation of performing rights for education. I wonder if that makes it legal. I'd be really interest to know if someone could advise.
