I basically just want something dedicated to keep all my files on so I can access it from any one of my computers, and to use as an FTP server. For home use. What I'd love is something like a Linksys EFG80, but I just can't afford a new one at the moment.

I'm not worried about harddrives or if it's not the fastest thing in the world. Even an old barebones P3 machine (Case, power supply, MB, processor, some RAM) that I can run Win2000 or Novell on.

It'd also be nice if it was fairly quiet, even though it's more then likely just be in a closet with no monitor/mouse/keyboard hooked up to it.


I just bought a 160GB Ximeta Netdisk yesterday to use as a 'file server' and they extremely suck, cheap though, but it just sucks.....it's being returned.
