We have a 10 PC peer to peer network running a mixture of Windows 98 &
Windows 2000. We are thinking of adding a central file server to allow easy
& frequent backup of data. We do not intend running any application software
on the server, it would only be used as a file server.
Are there any alternatives to purchasing a dedicated server machine &
installing something like NT or Novell client/server software?
We have plenty 'old' PC's kicking about but they lack a bit in horsepower.
We are trying to avoid the cost of purchasing a new server & the cost of
buying a 10 licence NT package.
We do file share at the moment over the network but things are a little
Any help would be most appreciated.
