Linux – again


Well I have finally got fed up with copying media around my home network, and having movies, music and pictures located in so many different places on so many PCs I thought that I would create one machine that would hold everything.

Of course this is running Debian 3.0 at the moment, and I am just installing all that is needed, but it looks like it is going to be a solid Samba install on a machine with a lot of space. In the near future I hope to have 1.3Tb of online storage on this machine, which should be enough for the near future.

Of course Debian in its wisedom has installed appletalk so I have removed it by:

apt-get remove netatalk

Instead if you wanted to keep it installed, a service manager like sysv-rc-conf could be installed and used.
