I have an old pentium 4 that i am thinking of using as a file server, and also to keep running overnight for downloads etc. in my last house we did this using Windows Server 2003 but my housemate left and took the old server with him. Im thinking of using Red Hat as i dont really want to fork out on another copy of windows. Can this be done easily? And also can you remote desktop into redhat from XP? Im thinking of shoving it in my cupboard so I can sleep and there is no room for a monitor. Mark.
