    Basically I want to set it up so everyone in the house has a login and can login to any of the computers and access all their files and also so I can control the software on everyones account and permissions.

    Ah, I see, you would probably be better off with a windows server as someone said above if you want profiles + msi distribution etc.

    I guess you need to ask whether its worth the hassle, but if its a learning experiment, go for it!

    Windows Server is expensive, would I be able to get a used copy from Ebay?

    Hi,

    Yep, you could buy a used server which may come with a copy of Server.

    Alternatively, you could download a 180 day trial and play with that?

    I suppose I could buy a used server but I would much rather play with Linux.

    I've experienced this to. Have you tried compiling bochs from source on both machines? We found a marginal improvement over precompiled binaries. Also, there are several bochs settings that you can twiddle which might help, but I guess that you know that,

    Hmm. Lots of people thinking about the same kind of thing these days - I'm planning to sort out my home system too. What sort of hardware were you thinking of? I'm going for a fanless motherboard, an as-near-to-silent case as I can find and some kind of hardware RAID controller - the ones that Stardom do seem pretty decent (you can find them on eBay), with RAID 1 and hot-swap capability. I'm going to simply install Ubuntu on my server, but a couple of people have asked me about similar systems and I figured I'll get them similar hardware but with Windows Home Server on instead (around 100 OEM) - I figure it'll be less fuss to support random printers.

    Hmm, 100... and they could still do with someone to manage their server for them... is it time for the Managed Home Server concept? Home users, with children / own business, who want to have stuff like safe web surfing for children and backup of vital data, encryption, shared file areas, etc. A company to provide hardware and ongoing servicing (off-site backup, virus updates, black-list updates, etc) of a home server?
